Current Exhibitions: Ben Roti • Variation : Balance

Ben Roti is a ceramic artist originally from Spirit Lake, IA. He attended the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA, from 2006 to 2010 and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics. During college, Ben’s ceramic work concentrated on the elements of world conflict culminating in his BFA show, “The Cost of War.” After finishing his BFA, Ben accepted a position as a studio assistant to ceramic artist, Don Reitz in Clarkdale, Arizona.

“My recent works are a response to prior life experiences. From my time as an assistant to Don Reitz and my instructional moments with students in the classroom to my solo turn in the studio, I have continued to experiment with a variety of firing processes. Atmospheric firing, for example, produces a unique, layered quality on the ceramic surface. I have dabbled with using sandblasting as a reductive technique to imitate a similar effect. This body of work is a variation of my past, an acknowledgement of the present, and my anticipation of the future.”
