Biography to Display: 

EDUCATION

1977 MFA New York State College of Ceramic Arts, Alfred University, Alfred, New York

PRIMARY WORK EXPERIENCE

1977 Studio artist

Associate professor at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cleveland, Ohio

 

Judith Salomon began her ceramic career making plates, bowls and other functional work covered with brightly colored geometric shapes floating on fields of white. As her career grew Solomon began to hand build sculptures frequently incorporating rectangular sheets of ceramic in abstract architecture forms. Salomon became a master at mixing matte and high-gloss glazes often on the same piece. Many of her sculptures are functional and can be used, however, Solomon is clearly interested in form first with function taking second place.
