Artist of the moment…..Anthony Prieto

Anthony Prieto was a wonderful ceramist born in Yaldepenas, Spain in the year 1912. Prieto is known for his unique style of pottery. When I first saw the shapes, it reminded of Picasso’s ceramic works and also ¬†of the modernist collage master Rex Ray.

The artist and his family came to the United States in 1916.

For his artistic education Prieto attended Alfred University located in the western region of the New York State.

Prieto went on to teach at the California College of Arts and Crafts, which is now the California College of the Arts. He also taught at Mills College located in Oakland, California.

Anthony Prieto passed away in 1967.
