Link to this object

Throughout his career, artist Bill Stewart has relied primarily on clay to create images and objects that are “on the edge, off center, humorous, weird, absurd or irreverent.” Wandering Weevil is one of Stewart’s large-scale ceramic figures that have typified his creative output in recent years. Drawing on innumerable sources from across time, Stewart’s playful figures incorporate references to toys, shamans, ancient deities, and archaeological artifacts.
Stewart taught sculpture at SUNY Brockport from 1966 through 1999, and his work is shown and collected regionally and nationally. The ambitious scale of a ceramic figure of this size, the variety of textures, and the challenges of firing such complicated ceramic forms all indicate the artist’s mastery of the medium.
