Max Seinfeld


Max Seinfeld is the Director of Sugar Maples Center for Creative Arts in New York, and a full time studio artist in South Windsor, Connecticut.

He makes one of a kind abstract ceramic sculptures out of porcelain, earthenware, and non-traditional materials.

In 2014 he received his BFA from the University of Hartford, Connecticut, and finished his post baccalaureate studies from the State University of New York at New Paltz in 2015. Following a two year residency at The Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY, and a two year assistant-ship with Doug Peltzman, Max has assisted a number of ceramic workshops at art centers across the country including Arrowmont, Peters Valley, Haystack, and Penland for studio potters Doug Peltzman, and Adam Field.

Max continues to exhibit and teach private lessons, workshops, nationally as well as internationally. Max creates objects that examine the interplay of contrasting relationships such as the slight movement of a solid material or a coarse texture that looks soft. Studying compositional elements such as line, color, and texture allows him to create a sense of tension through contrasting materials or form.
