"My abstract figurative ceramic sculptures reflect how the mind collects and organizes fragmented images from memory in order to continuously recreate a sense of history and self."
Hunter Stamps received his master of fine arts from Indiana University
in Bloomington, Indiana, and his bachelor of fine arts from the University of North Carolina in
Asheville, North Carolina.
The mixed media sculptures he creates incorporate ceramics, fabricated metal, molds, encaustics, rubbers and resins. The psychologically charged forms communicate an abject and fragmented aspect of the human condition. Stamps' work has been exhibited in more than 100 juried, invitational and solo exhibits; including galleries across the nation as well as China, Germany, Austria, Croatia and Spain. Images of his work have appeared in publications such as Ceramics Monthly and other scholarly journals, newspapers and exhibition catalogues.
Fascinated with kiln technology, Stamps has constructed several soda, salt, wood and oil burning kilns over the years. He has led undergraduates in researching, designing and constructing kilns fueled by used vegetable oil from local restaurants.
