Daniel Bare is a ceramic artist and educator. He earned his MFA in Ceramic Art from Alfred University, and a BFA in Crafts/Ceramics from The University of the Arts. His studio practice explores a range of ceramic related processes, including experimental post-consumer fused ceramic sculptures, and large-scale wet slip clay collaborative installations. Daniel’s sculptural and installation works examine the impact of overproduction, consumption and disposal of resources to show how these actions affect ecological balance.
In addition to teaching ceramics, Daniel’s professional experience includes being a resident artist at the Pottery Workshop Shanghai, China and Yueji Kiln International Contemporary Ceramic Art Center, China, the Archie Bray Foundation, Montana, Green Arts, Japan and most recently Medalta , Canada. His works are featured in several books and magazines including Glaze: The Ultimate Collection of Ceramic Glazes, and How They Were Made, Ceramics Monthly, and Ceramic Art and Perception. Daniel has publicly lectured about his work at NCECA, universities and art centers in the US and internationally.
