Ken Price, influential ceramist dies

As seen by the New York Times article link below, Ken Price was a revered artist who influenced many ceramists. He was from Los Angeles but lived near Taos, New Mexico later in his life. I lived in Taos for 6 years, up until 2011. I knew his family and knew that he was an artist that was very prolific and lived amongst the landscape that I grew to love. 

 This image of a sculpture that is outside his studio, shows the beauty that surrounded him in his later life.

His transformation of “the cup” into an architectural sculpture influenced many functional potters. Taking an object as familiar as a cup and making it barely functional was quite eye opening at the time.
