Professor Chad Gunderson is a nationally exhibited artist. Most recently, he was a part of the 2013 NCECA Biennial, Earth/Energy, and the 4th Contemporary Clay Biennial, in Grand Junction, Colorado at which he received juror's choice. He received his MFA from Arizona State University, Tempe and completed his BFA at Minnesota State University, Mankato. His experimentation with ceramic materials has lead him to a unique way of working with clay. His sculptures result as solid-glaze objects which reference vesiculated igneous rocks, Chinese scholars' rocks, and the brightly colored surfaces of plastic.
Chad Gunderson grew up in Minnesota and aspires to be a world traveler, but misses canoeing the waters of his home state. Despite his Masters degree, he owns a 96 count set of Crayola Crayons and still plays with Legos. Chad also awaits the day that commercial space flight is affordable.
He likes rocks.
