For her feature story in Ceramics Monthly about the influential work of Stanley Rosen, who taught generations of ceramics students at Bennington, philosophy faculty member Karen Gover interviewed one of Rosen’s former students, Josh Green ’81, executive director of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA).

Stanley Rosen

"Rosen, now in his 90s, once stood at the vanguard of ceramic art in the 1950s alongside such luminaries as Peter Voulkos and John Mason," wrote Over. "However, he renounced a life of showing and selling, opting instead to work quietly in his own studio, on his own terms, while teaching the principles of ceramic art at Bennington College in Vermont, to a generation of students."
