Luginbuhl will be displaying pieces that represent the recent directions his work has taken, including a series of rustic decanters inspired by the “ubiquitous metal containers still found in rural environments.” As well, he will be displaying ceramic vessels, a series of fish sculptures entitled “Feeding Frenzy” and a series of glass pieces.

Luginbuhl has exhibited pottery and ceramic sculpture in more than 150 regional and national exhibitions, and his work is included in many public and private collections nationwide. He has received many awards and his work is included in five Ohio museum collections. His exhibition record includes one-person shows in seven states, and he has been the juror for eighteen regional exhibitions.

Luginbuhl received a Master of Fine Arts degree in ceramics from the University of Montana in 1975, following a bachelor’s degree from Bluffton. He began teaching in 1984 at Bluffton and is now also chair of the Art Department.
