Seth Green received his M.F.A in ceramics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He has worked at Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, CO, and has been an artist-in-residence at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT. Seth is currently an assistant profession of ceramics at Morehead State university in Morehead, KY.


Seth’s work is wheel-thrown and assembled stoneware, fired in a soda kiln he recently built at Morehead State University with a group of students and a master kiln builder, Ted Neal, who teaches ceramics at Ball State University. His work is inspired by temples, palaces, and mosques of the Islamic world, the Czech Republic and other structures topped with domes, spires, and finials that pierce the sky and reach heavenward.


Seth Green was recently featured as one of the emerging artists in Ceramics Monthly magazine, and his work was included in the Lark Books publication 500 Vases. He has also been a demonstrator and visiting artist at the Michigan Mud Conference, Utah Valley University, Brigham Young University and the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts.


Seth’s work can be found at the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea.
