The Clay Studio


Retrospective

April 1 through May 28, 2017

Through his ceramic art, Pittsburgh artist Edward Eberle explores and tests the limits of porcelain, with his prolific body of work ranging from classically inspired vessels to altered and deconstructed sculptures. This career retrospective brings works from the mid-1980s to the present into dialogue allowing visitors to discover the timeless and intriguing work of a true master. The show highlights the evolution of the Eberle’s exquisite forms and fragmented, dreamlike imagery by featuring both his trademark porcelain work, as well as a series of works on paper. 


The exhibition originated at The Society of Contemporary Craft, Pittsburgh.
