Sculptor, ceramist, and author Marc Lancet: Comparative art inquiry

Marc Lancet is a contemporary artist who has worked in diverse traditions, from ancient Japanese tea culture and contemporary American art to the German, Japanese, and American Fluxus artists of the 1950s. He freely incorporates the values, principles, and aesthetics he encounters into his artistic inquiry. The intersections of these diverse cultural influences abound with commonalities and contradictions, and Lancet searches these junctures to find abundant inspiration. Comparative Art Inquiry is the process that has emerged from his work at these cultural crossroads.

About the artist:
Marc Lancet is the coauthor of 
Japanese Wood-fired Ceramics, translated into German and Chinese. His art is in numerous collections, including those of the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Center in Japan, the International Ceramic Center in Denmark, the United States Embassy in Estonia, the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, and the Fluxus+ Museum and the Keramik-Museum Berlin in German. He lives in Davis, California, with his wife Annette and his daughter Evan.
