Bernardo Hogan (Argentina, 1921) was established in Puerto Rico since 1968, where he was co-founder of Casa Candina. He specialized in the technical aspect of clays, glazes and enamels. His work centers on the vessel as a unique form, which he created both by wheel throwing and by coiling and shaping, because, in his words, the vessel is “the constant language of all times”. He has had several solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Venezuela, United States, France and Italy. The International Association of Art Critics, San Juan chapter, awarded him the prize for Best Retrospective Exhibition in 1996. He was awarded the Gold Medal of the Concorso Internazionalle della Ceramica in Faenza, Italy in 1984.
