Bruce Cochrane - Bio

Bruce Cochrane is an internationally acclaimed ceramic artist and recently retired Professor Emeritus of Ceramics at Sheridan College. During his 30 plus years of teaching at Sheridan he was instrumental in developing the Ceramic Program’s reputation as one of the best in Canada. He is himself one of Canada’s pre-eminent ceramic artists with work featured in public and private collections around the world.

Bruce’s studies began at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and continued in Alfred, New York at the New York State College of Ceramics where he received his Masters of Fine Art. Since his graduation in 1978 Bruce has participated in over 300 exhibitions, and shares his knowledge through lectures and workshops throughout North America.

 His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto, Victoria and Albert Museum in London, England and the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa to name a few.

Bruce resides in Toronto and maintains his studio practice in Grey Highlands, Ontario.

Workshop Description

During this two hour demonstration, Bruce will make two pieces that show his recent explorations. One will demonstrate the geometric relief surface treatment on a composite thrown form and the other will be a handbuilt double walled platter with graphic slip decoration. 

These new techniques offer a variety of possibilities for discovering new forms and surfaces. 

Fired examples will also be shown and discussed. 

There will be a recording available for two weeks for registrants after the live event.
