Kirk Mangus: Things Love

Texts by: Rose Bouthillier, William Busta, Glen Brown, and Eva Kwong.


Kirk Mangus (1952-2013) was an internationally recognized ceramicist, and a dedicated teacher and mentor for almost 30 years at Kent State University. This monograph accompanies the career retrospective Kirk Mangus: Things Love, and offers an expansive look at the artist’s life and work. Over 150 full-color plates show the breadth of Mangus’s practice in clay, from humble cups to ornate vessels and large totemic sculptures. A selection of sketches, drawings, and paintings are also included, revealing the graphic underpinnings of Mangus’s style. The volume includes texts by Rose Bouthillier, the exhibition curator; William Busta, Mangus’s Cleveland gallerist; Glen R. Brown, ceramics scholar; and Eva Kwong, Mangus’s widow and fellow artist. A selection of Mangus’s own writings and poetry, along with ephemera from the course of his life, chronology, and comprehensive CV, give a personal and in-depth account.
