Paul Dresang

American, b. 1948

Paul Dresang (born in Appleton, Wisconsin, 1948) is an American ceramic artist and professor at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Working mainly with glass, porcelain, and clay, Dresang’s “highly individual, sensuous, salt-fired porcelain forms are decorated with an obsessive amount of detail.”[1] He defines his work primarily as “post-modern fertility pieces".”[2] Dresang aims to create surreal images with ceramics by often focusing on everyday items in his work, and by exploring “opposing ideas of constraint and breaking free”.[3] His work is defined by a unique sense of form and decoration. After receiving his MFA in ceramics from the University of Minnesota, Dresang has gone on to become a highly sought-after potter. He has presented his work in countless group exhibitions, and is featured in many permanent collections nationally.
