Biographical Information:

Judd Schiffman is a Providence based artist working primarily in ceramics. His work investigates the relationship between objects, identity, culture, and psychological inheritance. Schiffman makes ceramic objects derived from family heirlooms, personal mementos, and historic artifacts. In the studio, he explores the simultaneous ritualization, and indifference of the souvenirs that compose an individual’s life experience.

Schiffman has lectured at Brown University Hillel and Harvard Ceramics, and participated in residencies at the Zentrum Fur Keramiks in Berlin and Arch Contemporary in Tiverton, Rhode Island. He received his MFA from the University of Colorado in 2015, and his BA from Prescott College in 2007. He has exhibited his work nationally, and in 2016, received an emerging artists award from the National Council for the Education of Ceramic Arts.
