David Furman Cover

For more than 40 years, artist David Furman has created diverse works in clay that express his ideas, experiences, and perceptions through irony, empathy, and humor. His repertoire is vast: miniature room vignettes and smallscale “contemporary ruins” and trompe l’oeil works imitating ceramic tools, paintbrush-filled coffee cans, tea cups with floating pencils and erasers, and chalkboards and bulletin boards. Furman’s more recent work is focused on composite-vegetable teapots and wooden-mannequin based scenarios that portray human emotion.

David Furman: The Artist is in the Details will be accompanied by a full-color catalog documenting the works of David Furman, complete with essays by Kirsten Ellsworth, Elaine Levin, Mary MacNaughton, and a forward by David Armstrong. This publication is funded in-part by the Pasadena Art Alliance.
