Sequoia Miller is a historian, curator, and studio potter. He is the Chief Curator at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, Toronto, Canada. Miller received a BA in Russian and Art History from Brandeis University and an MA from the Bard Graduate Center for Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture in New York City. Miller received his doctorate in the History of Art from Yale University. His thesis analyzed the connections between ceramics and conceptual art practices on the East and West Coasts of the United States in the 1960s and 1970s. Miller curated The Ceramic Presence in Modern Art at the Yale University Art Gallery and authored the accompanying award-winning catalog. His research also includes sixteenth and seventeenth-century German stoneware, English salt-glazed stoneware, and Queen Mary’s monumental delftware.
Before re-entering academia, Miller was a full-time studio potter for over ten years. Based in the Pacific Northwest, he made one-of-a-kind functional pots for daily use in domestic environments. Miller has exhibited widely and led workshops at craft schools, universities, and art centers.
