Bruce Duke was an immensely important ceramic artist and arts educator who is defined by a life-lived. His art and mentorship impacted thousands of lives, and he was a star-maker of numerous, prominent clay artists including Viola Frey. Our community has lost a legend. We are humbled to have premiered his retrospective exhibition in 2015, represented his work in the Co-Op, and to have recently celebrated with him at the Art Awards Luncheon (Artist Mentor of Influence & Inspiration Award) in August.
