Known for his biomorphic forms and dedication to an exploration of the vessel, Gustin has also developed a following as one of the most respected artists specializing in the Anagama wood­firing tradition. This exhibition was curated by Sherry Leedy, of Sherry Leedy Contemporary Art, in Kansas City, MO. She began working with Fuller Craft Museum on this exhibition over three years ago and helped with the original grant to the Windgate Foundation that made the exhibition possible. There are examples of almost every series of work made, with pieces from numerous public and private collections throughout the country, as well as Gustin’s own archives. –
