The last artist in our Open Studios series is our co-creator Yori Seeger!
Yori is a sculptor working in media and equipment that range from iron, cement and wood to laser cutters, pedagogy and the human experience. He incorporates any and all materials that he feels are appropriate in order to convey ideas which focus primarily on the human figure. He deconstructs, re-orients and arranges elements to forge a connection with those who view his work. No two pieces or projects are quite the same, yet all the artwork has a common thread to evidence the hand that made it.
Yori Seeger was born in Mt. Shasta and grew up in Santa Cruz, California. He has a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in Ceramic Sculpture. In 2013, Yori and his wife Dana opened an art studio and education center called the School of Visual Philosophy in San Jose, California. He is the President and Executive Director of the School as well as teaches sculpture classes there. Yori has been published in Ceramics Monthly, exhibited his work regionally and has his work in numerous private collections. He lives in Ben Lomond, California with his family.
Yori is currently working on his first public commission and is excited to be sculpting again in the studio.
