The Ceramics Series – Delhom Service League: “Making a Big Intricate Ceramic Platter”, Film and Talk with Herb Cohen

Herb Cohen will share his expertise and vast experience as a master ceramic artist as you view a film he made while creating a large platter.

Herb earned a BFA and MFA from Alfred University. Between his degrees he served in the US Army during the Korean war.

In 1956 he came to North Carolina where he was employed as an industrial ceramic designer for Hyalyn Porcelain Co. in Hickory and then came to work for the Mint Museum as exhibition director from 1958 to 1972. During those years he twice served as interim director.

He and his husband, José Fumero a fabric designer and painter, set up their studios in Blowing Rock where they created their work for 38 years. Herb’s work as a potter included functional stoneware, decorative unique pots, and sculpture.

He currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina.

In 2012 the Mint Museum featured a solo exhibition, “Sophisticated Surfaces: The Pottery of Herb Cohen”. Learn more about Herb and his work in the brochure for this exhibition http://bit.ly/Herb_Cohen_Sophisticated_Surfaces
