“I am a self-taught ceramic artist who likes to build complex sculpture forms by hand, focusing on the figure.”
Rick Irwin is a self-taught artist who began to pursue a lifelong interest in ceramics as he phased out of practicing optometry in Austin. From the beginning he gravitated toward hand-building due to the great versatility of form it offers. His work has gradually morphed from functional pieces to more complex sculptural forms, primarily figurative.
