About The Artist
Eric Serritella • Chapel Hill, NC
Glass • WHOLESALE AVAILABLE • CUSTOM COMMISSIONS
Over 2 decades of Serritella’s ceramic trompe l’oeil birch sculptures have become recognized worldwide, with dozens of works in museum collections. During the pandemic he added colorful glass artwork to his repertoire. They serve as conduits to emotion & connection through inquiry, recognition & familiarity. Vessels link humanity & nature as timelessly inseparable. They channel nature’s private stories so secluded voices and soul-singings are heard. Each is made in clay then pate de verre cast.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
Works are created in clay using wheel throwing, slab and/or hand-building techniques. Pate de verre (paste of glass) is then meticulously applied in plaster castings of the clay forms. Works are sometimes fired multiple times to achieve the desired effects.
