Brent Bennett is a California ceramic artist whose career started over 5 decades ago when he began working as an apprentice for Raul Coronel (see my post on Raul here). He has created a wide variety of pieces including; fountains, vessels, lamps, tables and wall reliefs. Bennett's pieces have an organic quality imparted through his use of hand carved surface textures, plant-inspired motifs and shapes, as well as glazes that reveal the underlying earthen structure. Most of these images are from an exhibit held in 2005 by NOHO Modern.
