"The Jersey Devil vase started as a one-off. I am a mold-maker and I already had the mold for the horn as I used it as a handle on a coffee mug. The fun part is using molds in unique and unexpected ways. I joined two horn handles to a small vase and it became the devil. I have played with the position of the horns in gestural ways as well as added the vase to a dodecagon base. I enjoy the freedom of playing with parts and rearranging them. I made the first few vases for fun. A curator asked for them for an exhibition and encouraged me that they fit in with my other work. I am from New Jersey, living in Ohio, so the title was a no brainer. The Jersey Devil is New Jersey folklore, having two hooved feet, bats wings and horns. My vase is also a conglomeration of mismatched parts."

Seth Nagelberg is an artist and designer working in clay. He strives to close the gap between craft and design. Nagelberg says, “I choose clay for its properties. Whether working from ready-made objects or starting from a sketch, I strive to create a cohesive language of forms that inform and inspire new designs. My exploration of manufacturing techniques and technology enables me to connect the past and future of ceramics.” He earned a BFA from the University of Hartford and MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. In 2015 Nagelberg published his first book, Batch Manufacturing for Ceramics: Models and Molds, Process to Product. His work has been published in Ceramics: Art and Perception and American Craft magazine. Nagelberg is the Ceramics department chair at Cleveland institute of Art.
