Vince Palacios (b.1961, Flint, Michigan) has been working in the fields of ceramics since 1992 and currently serves as Professor of the Ceramics Department at El Camino College in Torrance, California. Literally overflowing with bright colors and crackling textures, his work is a dance between awkwardness and expertise. The result is a controlled chaos of improvised forms and overlapping glazes, using classical techniques to add whimsy to a traditional craft.
“Each day I work is similar to each night that a comedian or performer does a routine. There are set ideas, techniques, and expectations; but each time something new emerges in response to external stimulus, or circumstance. I love improvisational work!” -Artist Statement
