Student Spotlight: Bradley Holmes

Student Spotlight: Bradley Holmes

The inaugural spotlight showcases the work of Bradley Holmes, a long-time student and member of the ceramic’s community at Richmond Art Center. The selected works consist of vessels that demonstrate Holmes’ focus on the simplicity and beauty of the form of everyday objects.

Originally from Regional Victoria, Australia, Holmes began making pottery after moving to the United States to study at UC Berkeley. Holmes was introduced to ceramics by a friend and fellow student while looking for a creative outlet to balance his studies in Chemical Engineering at UC Berkeley.  He soon developed a love of the tactile, fluid and meditative journey that one takes with a piece of clay on its way to becoming a permanent object. 

I am originally from Melbourne, Australia and have lived in the bay area for the past 20 years. I have worked out of the pottery studio at the Richmond Art Center for the past 8, and love its people, community and creative atmosphere.”
