Ceramics

“My role in the liberal arts setting has grown to embrace the potential for hands-on endeavors to act as a vehicle for problem-solving skill development in students, even beyond the studio setting,” says David Eichelberger. David comes to Marlboro from Ferrum College, and he also has teaching experience from Appalachian State University, the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and the most established craft schools in the nation. His experience in the field includes technical aspects of ceramics from glaze formulation to kiln building, from wheel throwing to hand building. David avoids labels and bridges definitions by acting as both “potter” and “sculptor.” He makes one-of-a-kind pieces in his own studio, exhibits nationally, and co-owns a wholesale porcelain tableware business. His work has been published in Ceramics Monthly, American Craft, and Clay: A Studio Handbook, among other publications.
