Ceramics Manager Pedro Centeno

Pedro Centeno is FVAC's ceramics studio manager and instructor. He is also an FVAC studio artist and out of his "Junkpot" studio he creates functional ceramics pieces such as, teapots, mugs, plates and jars using wheel throwing, hand building, and mould making techniques. His love of old building material, wood, rebar, and rusty metal, influences each piece. Through multiple glaze applications and firings, the desired weathered appearance is achieved and intriguing illusions of materials are formed. Check out his website here.
