Maxwell Mustardo was born in 1993 in rural New Jersey. He has degrees in Ceramics & Art History from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University; studied material culture in Japan & South Korea, and industrial design in Beijing, China. He is coming to Sonoma from a residency program at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft in Houston, Texas.
Max says, “I approach making as a vital opportunity to examine perception and signification. My work engages with ceramics as a polyphonic medium: one which speaks in multiple voices simultaneously. Many projects revolve around broad, reverential notions of the vessel, the body, and language. Objects are focused upon as vital witnesses and participants, reflections and poems, animate and imagined.”
