A piece of original ceramic artwork crafted by Baylor’s Ceramicist in Residence. Paul McCoy’s work has appeared on the cover of Modern Art and on exhibit in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Raised in Chicago’s south side, Paul McCoy began working in clay in 1964 under the direction of Daniel Edler at Scattergood Friends School, a boarding school in rural West Branch, Iowa. He taught ceramics in Chicago-area high schools for several years before moving to Texas to work in the oilfields. During this period, McCoy enrolled in evening ceramics courses at the University of Houston/Clear Lake, where he spent two years working under the supervision of Professor Nick de Vries, who McCoy credits as one of his most significant influences and mentors. After completing his graduate studies at the University of Iowa, McCoy moved to Waco in 1986 to direct the ceramics program at Baylor University.
McCoy’s creative endeavors embrace both functional and sculptural ceramics. His work has been exhibited, published, and collected at national and international levels for the past 21 years.
This truly one of a kind piece that must be seen in person!
