Bill Attaway's work often merges the medias of ceramics, painting, and sculpture, and deals with the theme of personal expression. He is one of the premier African-American ceramics artists in the United States. Attaway was featured in the 1997 Scripps Ceramic Annual in Claremont, California, and won the design for the Pomona Metrolink Station in California the same year. Attaway has done numerous murals in the southern California area since the mid-1980's, including the Bel Age Hotel in Los Angeles, and the Waterfront Hilton in Huntington Beach. He has taught at the Venice Art Mecca every summer since 1994.
