Artist of the moment……….Rudy Autio

 

Rudy Autio was an American artist renown for his work with ceramics and sculpture. Rudy Autio was born in Butte, Montana in the year 1926.

Autio attended Montana State University at Bozeman, Montana where he earned a B.F.A. Autio went on to earn a M.F.A. from Washington State University located in Pullman, Washington.

Rudy Autio was a professor at the University of Montana and started the ceramics program in Missoula in 1957. The artist Beth Lo, profiled yesterday took over his post at the University after Autio retired.

 

Below we visit the artist in his studio and view some of his works. This clip is great to see the scale of Autio’s larger vessels:

Rudy Autio passed away in 2006 at the age of 80 years old.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

What unique style. I enjoy his ceramics work very much as the artist was a master at drawing with line. The works aren’t just a vessel with a unique shape, Autio’s vessels contains a wonderful mix of line and color that make them seem like an animated vase.

Autio is part of the collection of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Missoula, Montana Art Museum.
