Brad Schwieger

American, b. 1957

Black House Structure

34 x 18 x 6.75 in.
Gift of the Nora Eccles Treadwell Foundation

Brad Schwieger is known for his hefty, highly altered wheel-thrown stoneware vessel forms, and, in the case of Black House Structure, his massive handbuilt sculpture. For his wheel work, pieces are cut, stretched, stacked, twisted, and reassembled, resulting in slightly asymmetrical objects. Though this sculpture looks casual, it is soundly constructed. Stark in its architectural form, the offhand edges give it a playful quality. Schwieger says, “Form is the most essential element in my work. My secondary focus is to develop different types of surfaces that will enhance and support the form.”

Brad Schwieger has been teaching at Ohio University since 1990 and is currently professor of art and chair of the ceramics area. Prior to that, he was from 1985 to 1990 an associate professor at Vincennes University in Indiana. He received his BFA from the University of Iowa in 1981, and his MFA from Utah State University in 1983.
