Instructor Info: John Fazzino:|
John Fazzino’s work is an eclectic collection of objects for and about the garden. The larger outdoor work nests itself in the garden, creating a nice counterpoint to the flowers, trees and shrubs surrounding it. Smaller pieces use flowers and stems from the garden, and can be brought into the home enhancing indoors. He is continually inspired by the spaces he inhabits, whether in nature or the man made world. He is compelled to make work that brings beauty and joy into our current field of vision. John has been working in the field for 35 years and teaching ceramics for the past 15.
