Details

Collecting art often involves a number of motivations, but for Sidney Swidler the main catalyst was the excitement he got from the objects themselves. In 1984, Swidler began collecting contemporary ceramics and, since that time, he has collected over 1,000 objects. His background as a modern architect honed his eye for the essential elements of form, texture, glaze selection, craftsmanship, and artistic intent. His preference for contemporary work was enriched by the interaction he could have with the living artist. He visited studios and attended national ceramics conventions where he discovered the work of hundreds of ceramicists from the United States and beyond.
