A Roane State Community College art professor’s whimsical creations—including grinning skulls and mystical creatures on ceramic mugs and bowls, and a brightly painted ceramic wheel—are showcased in a page ad in “Ceramics Monthly,” the nation’s foremost magazine devoted to clay artistry, a press release said.
Bryan Wilkerson’s handiwork, including his painting of a pottery wheel, are featured in the ad taken by AMACO Brent, also known as the American Art and Clay Company, in celebration of the company’s 50th year in business.
The company requested testimonials from various artists last March, and his creations were selected for the ad, which was published recently, Wilkerson said.
The recognition is a “huge deal in the ceramics world,” said Teresa Duncan, Roane State’s vice president of workforce and community development.
“I was thrilled to be selected,” Wilkerson said.
