Erik Scollon is an artist and writer based in Oakland, California. In 2008 he was selected to participate in YBCA's Bay Area Now 5, and his work has been seen in venues as diverse as art galleries, craft fairs, museum shows, design blogs and gay biker bars. His ceramic work flirts with the border of fine art and craft, making strange hybrid potentially useful, potentially sculptural objects. He recived an MFA in ceramics and an MA in Visual and Critical Studies, both from California College of the Arts. Along with Amanda Curreri, he is the co-editor and co-founder of an (ir)regular artist publication, Color&Color, which aims to tactically connect artists with new audiences and expanded dialogue through the serial print medium of small books.
He is a lecturer at CCA’s ceramics program, and also teaches at UC Berkeley's Art Studio. He is represented by Romer Young Gallery in San Francisco.
