Originally from France, Charley Farrero has worked as a ceramic artist since 1972. He studied Fine Arts in both Regina SK and Banff AB, and currently lives and works as an artist in Meacham SK.
"My work is my statement...I am attracted by all ceramic processes and I meander from one to another frequently with dedicated enthusiasm. I use all kinds of clays and all kinds of firing methods. The creation of my sculptural ceramic has been free of any one strong principle influence. I have absorbed the "funk movement" of California ceramics as much as Bahaus traditions or surrealism and dadaist approach, all that is mixed with some personal ideas and concerns. I am influenced by everything. In Saskatchewan, due to our somewhat isolated situation and short history of ceramics traditions, I do not have a school of thought or a trend. I have to invent one: my own voice."
