Daniel Rhodes- Japanese Tamba

Recommended Posts

I'm a Technical Writer who is interning at an Art Institute in my hometown. I'm writing a biography for an exhibit featuring Daniel Rhodes. I wondered if anyone had any information on what type of philosophies and genres he may have supported and displayed in his art work after he lived in Japan. I find the "Heads" and the "Guardians" pieces to be very beautiful; however, i can't seem to find any information on the philosophy or reasoning behind why he created these. Any interesting facts or comments would be very helpful.

Thank you for your suggestions. And I read "Artsy Babble" and I agree. I'm looking to write a biography that anyone can understand no matter their knowledge level on art--my job is to do the translating for the people :)

There is a preface to his book "Pottery Form" that may be of interest.  I know of the head forms but this was after he went to Japan and I was no longer a student of his.  I will ask my friend Prof. Wally Higgins about this.
