Fred Herbst: Material Collaborations

A unique woodfired kiln was developed by ceramic artist and educator Fred Herbst in collaboration with the Corning Museum of Glass in 2008. This kiln design was built in order to fire ceramics and blow glass simultaneously using renewable wood fuel. Two kilns have been built, one at Corning Community College in Corning, New York and one at the Domaine de Boisbuchet in France, where they both continue to reveal new possibilities with clay and glass.

Fred Herbst grew up near Green Bay, Wisconsin and received a BFA in Art from the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. He then attended the University of North Texas and earned a Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics. Fred is currently a Professor of Art and Chair of the Humanities Department at Corning Community College in Corning, New York.

Fred’s woodfired ceramic work has been shown in a wide variety of exhibitions across the USA and internationally. He has given presentations for the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, the Glass Art Society, and the First European Woodfired Ceramics Conference in Germany. He has had articles published in Ceramics Monthly, Studio Potter, and The Log Book: The International Publication for Woodfired Ceramics. His work has appeared in Ceramics: Art and Perception, 500 Teapots Vol. 2, and Wood-fired Ceramics: 100 Contemporary Artists.

Fred developed a hybrid woodfired ceramics and glassblowing kiln in collaboration with the Corning Museum of Glass. This design is used to fire ceramics and blow glass simultaneously and has been built at CCC and the Domaine de Boisbuchet in France. His website is fredherbst.com
