Don Reitz: Out of the Ashes
Ceramics: Art and Perception (2009)
  • Jo Farb Hernandez, San Jose State University

The writer discusses the work of ceramic sculptor Don Reitz on the occasion of an exhibition of his work at the Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery at San Jose State University in San Jose, California, from October 28 to December 19, 2008. Over the past 50 years, Reitz has worked unflaggingly, investigating different clays, types of firing, and ceramics traditions. This master technician and unique potter opts to dramatically alter his thrown forms, manipulating classic contours by pushing, pulling, stabbing, marking, and painting.
