Prof. David Hill received a Bachelors of Fine Arts degree from Shorter University in 2005 and a Masters of Fine Arts degree from Clemson University in 2010. Between degrees Hill worked as a production potter at The Mark of the Potter, a fine craft pottery store in north Georgia. As a result of his studies and work experience he was able to gain an expertise in a wide range of ceramic and sculptural methods, including firing ceramics in an anagama, a traditional Japanese wood-burning kiln.
A member of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, Prof. Hill has exhibited nationally and internationally, including the Workhouse Clay National 2011 Juried Exhibition at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA, as well as the Medalta International Cup Show in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada. He has also participated in group and solo shows including “Out of the Ashes” at Catherine Hayes Art + Sculpture Gallery in Greenville, SC, as well as “Wounds and the Unseen,” a solo exhibit at the Ferguson Center Art Gallery at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. He has won several awards for his artwork, and stays involved with community art programs for fundraising and arts awareness.
