Episode 2. Interview with ceramic artist Cannupa Hanska

Ceramic artist Cannupa Hanska 

In this episode I talk with ceramic and mixed media artist Cannupa Hanska (Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara/Lakota). Cannupa Hanska is from Standing Rock Reservation, North Dakota, and in this interview we learn about his life and process, beginning with growing up on a ranch, being free to explore his imagination without constraint. He also talks about being the son of an artist mother, about attending art school, being 'art trash', and the shift of becoming a father. Cannupa also explains his process and we learn to further appreciate the dynamic relationship between the artist and the clay.

I invite you to listen in to the world of artist Cannupa Hanska.

More about the Artist

"Communication drives me as an artist, but ultimately, I create out of responsibility.  In the entire world I am the only one who can see what I see, and maybe I can create a vision that someone can relate to, and this is enough." -Cannupa Hanska

There is a unique way that artist Cannupa Hanska sees the world. It seems he is activated on every level of his being, engaging with his art in such a complex and compassionate way, that it seems he is in a constant state of discovery and adaptation. Perhaps he has found a love for continual creation through art not separate from every part of his life, a balance that not many can maintain. His creative process has no end and no beginning, and this is reflected in each new, refreshing and complex body of work he produces. 


Cannupa Hanska is represented with Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
