Danny Kostyshin - An Online Restrospective
Danny Kostyshin - An Online Retrospective & Some New Perspectives for the New Millennium

Danny 2009

Welcome to the Archives.

This section of the site delves in some detail into the various projects and themes which characterize my work. Much of it documents early experiments in clay that were synonymous with the times.
Hal Riegger and Paul Soldner were introducing raku firing to Western ceramists.
There was a desire to create a contemporary art form using clay as a medium.
Political events were very much in my mind when I created many of the works such as the Reagan Suite and the condom boxes. I felt a need to join in dialogue about gay rights, HIV , and the acceptance of different kinds of families.
