Artist: David MacDonald

A native of New Jersey, Prof. MacDonald received his undergraduate degree from Hampton University; where he studied under the noted African American ceramic artist Joseph Gilliard.

“For myself, the essence of the art experience, is one of self- discovery and communication. In one sense, it is a very private and personal journey in search of order, reason, reality and beauty. Yet in another sense, it is a very public act in the attempt to express and share, with others, my realizations and discoveries.”

“The principal concern of my art is the articulation of the magnificence and nobility of the human spirit; and a celebration of my African heritage. The material I use is clay. The primary vehicle for this expressions, the vessel.”

“In my view, the vessel represents unique social and spiritual connections and associations, to all people, that do not exist in non- vessel ceramic forms. There exists in the vessel a timelessness and universality that records, contains and perpetuates the very essence of humanity and the human experience.”
