Seth Nagelberg is an artist and designer working primarily in clay. In 2015 Nagelberg published his first book, Batch Manufacturing for Ceramics: Models and Molds, Process to Product. He was selected for the Open Studio Residency at Haystack Mountain School in Maine, summer 2015. Before joining Cleveland Institute of Art, Nagelberg was assistant professor at Parsons The New School For Design in New York City. He has done consultation work for Rookwood Pottery and fabrication for Calvin Klein Collection. Nagelberg says, “I choose clay for its properties. Whether working from ready-made objects or starting from a sketch, I strive to create a cohesive language of forms that inform and inspire new designs. My exploration of manufacturing techniques and technology enables me to connect the past and future of ceramics.” His work has been published in Ceramics: Art and Perception and American Craft magazine. Nagelberg has taught workshops at Greenwich House Pottery, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Ceramic Supply Inc, Hartford Art School and Peters Valley School of Craft.expand collapse

I began my work in clay, studying with John Perri at the State University of Wisconsin, at Menomonie, Wisconsin. After serving in the armed forces I returned to Wisconsin to study with Don Reitz at The university of Wisconsin, Madison. I completed a MFA at Alfred University in 1976 and traveled to North Carolina and was a resident craftsman at the Penland School. After several years as a studio potter I taught ceramics at ETSU for a year and then returned to Penland School where I worked and taught till 1980.
I currently live and work in Cleveland, Ohio. I have a studio in the old steel-making district and have taught ceramics at Cleveland Institute of Art with Judith Salomon for the last 34 years. I divide my week between teaching at the CIA and making pots and doing commission work in my Tremont studio.
