Ed Gilliam

Ed Gilliam

Ed Gilliam's drawings and paintings, on clay and otherwise, can be haunting, surreal, and confounding. His clay work includes both sculpture and decorated platters. The work speaks to various aspects of the human condition, not always pleasant, and frequently includes quotes including scripture.

Ed Gilliam Artist Info

Born in 1930, I drew as a youth in the 1940's. Now, after careers in law, public accounting and businesses, I draw again. I draw to attract the eyes and mind. I consider a drawing successful if the viewer dwells more than a moment inspecting it and wonders about the drawer.

My canvas most-often is slab-rolled clay, with slips randomly brushed on, draped over a plate mold. I draw and paint on the bisqued plate with underglazes and glazes and fire at Cone 04 often four to five times.

Clay is challenging medium, offering amazing diversity to those willing to pamper the kiln gods. I hope to indulge them a long time.
