After receiving his Masters of Fine Art at the University of California at Davis in 1985, Tony has been working as a professional artist in ceramic sculpture. His main interest has been in large scale humorous figurative ceramic sculpture. In undergraduate and graduate school he was fortunate to have studied at the University of California, Davis' TB9 ceramic studio with the artist that put figurative ceramic sculpture on the map, Robert Arneson. Since then he has been showing in galleries and museums around the world and has been commissioned to do several public and private sculptures in bronze, fiberglass and ceramic. Tony maintains a studio in Sacramento, CA and for the past three years he has been a curator at blue line arts! http://www.bluelinearts.org

My recent work consists of larger-than-life ceramic busts; satirically depicting the general nature and eccentricities of my subjects. Humor plays an integral part in the physiological make-up of each character. The use of bold, vivid color and the exaggerated gestures also add a dimension in creating the personality and mood of the busts/characters.
