Val Cushing (1931-2013) is a pottery legend. Born in Rochester, New York Val received his bachelor and masters of fine arts degrees from the School of Art and Design, New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He joined the Alfred faculty in 1957 and retired in 1997. Val maintained a studio in Alfred Station and gave workshops and lectures throughout the world. Selected public collections of Val’s work are at the Brooklyn Museum, NY; Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt Museum, National Design Museum, NY; Detroit Institute of Art, Detroit, MI; Everson Museum, Syracuse, NY; Museum of Art and Design, NY; Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC; and Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, NY.

This exhibition was organized by Susan Kowalczyk, the museum’s collection manager from pieces in the permanent collection and on loan from the family. Beauty and function are themes in his work.

I aspire to make beautiful pottery - some to be used and some to function visually, as sculpture. I look for ideas in a variety of places, but nature is my primary source. It is in nature that I find the rich colors, the dynamic textures and the harmonious forms I love to make. -Val M. Cushing
