For years George Woideck has been developing a career as a prominent ceramic artist. Trained as a painter, with time off to tour and record as a rock musician, Mr. Woideck began working full time in clay. He initially established a line of functional stoneware pottery. More recently, George has turned to creating individually-decorated works in porcelain. Many of these new pieces are meant for wall display and include Japanese-shaped porcelain kites and fans decorated with colorfully airbrushed abstract and figurative designs. He has also become well known for creating major ceramic tile murals and mosaics installed in locations including performing art centers, libraries, places of worship, hospitals and other public places as well as homes. You can see many of these works at artisanarchitecturalceramics.com .
When not working in his studio, George Woideck has given ceramic workshops on new techniques to school instructors for the Teacher Resource Center of the Cleveland Museum of Art. He completes artist-in-residences for The Center for Arts-Inspired Learning and The Ohio Arts Council and regularly curates and juries exhibitions. George Woideck has been a member of the advisory committee of the Arts Management Program of the Weatherhead School of Management of Case Western Reserve University and received an award in recognition of his work in art education by the Ohio Art Education Association.
