Bill Hard At Work

"In my years at USF, I learned how to transform a smooth, flat sheet of paper into a representation of depth and dimension."

"Over time, a unique and personal style emerged, employing clay to achieve that vision of a 3-dimensions with flowing structure. The sculpture was born from a quest for surface expression as my compositions of texture and lines led me into a palpable third dimension."

"Later, color emerged as an important factor with the use of clay colorants mixed with the raku clay body. As science is inseparable from art, I documented each experimental formula until I had achieved a broad spectrum of colors. Using these oxided clays, I have gained control of my medium and can now realize all of the dimensions I visualize."

Bill Herb curently exhibits with many fine art galleries and his work is found in many corporate and private art collections. Bill is also a member of the American Craft Council's National Association of Independent Artists (NAIA)
