Erik Scollon plays with the histories and traditions of object making and education by reworking ceramic practice and by experimenting with performative and participatory projects. By moving between ‘sculpture’ to ‘ceramics,’ functional objects to aesthetically autonomous objects, social engaged service works and recorded performances, he investigates issues of education, access, taste, class, gender, and queerness. A committed educator, Scollon is associate professor and chair of the First Year CORE Studio Program at California College of the Arts. He has taught in the Department of Art Practice at UC Berkeley as well as The Berkeley Art Studio in Berkeley, California.
