‘Working with ceramics is something near and dear to my heart. It feeds my soul… it gives me purpose and it gives me space to express myself.’

Woody De Othello is a ceramicist and painter who lives and works in San Francisco. His work has exhibited at the San Jose Museum of Art and the 2022 Whitney Biennial, and can be found in the collections of museums including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum.

De Othello is one of 23 international artists whose works feature in the Hayward Gallery exhibition, Strange Clay: Ceramics in Contemporary Art.

In this video interview the artist covers a number of topics including the appeal of ceramics, both as an artistic medium and also in terms of what it offers him as an artist; the breadth of influences in his work, which are increasingly diasporic and ancestral, taking him to explore the notion of Black life in Africa and what that looks like; and the metaphorical quantities of everyday object
