This new biography, written by Louana Lackey, is a history and celebration of Autio's life, work, career, and techniques. Rudy Autio is considered one of the most important and influential ceramic artists working in the United States in the last fifty years. With works in the permanent collections of museums around the world, he has left an indelible mark on the world with his art.
In addition to the physical displays of Autio's art, his influence can be found in many other areas. In 1951, he co-founded the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana with fellow artist and friend, Peter Voulkos. In 1957, Autio founded the Ceramics Department at the University of Montana in Missoula and began a nearly 30-year long teaching career at the school. In addition to his teaching, he has given lectures and conducted more than 100 workshops in the United States and other countries. This exciting new book, the first to be written on Autio, is a history and celebration of his life and work, and is supported by a stunning gallery of more than 150 color images
