Luce Artist Biography

Harlan W. Butt is Regent's Professor at the University of North Texas, where he has led the metalsmithing program since 1976. A Zen Buddhist who learned his craft on many trips to Japan and India, the artist believes that behind all of the things that we see lies a liberating "emptiness . . . of infinite potential." His incense burners and enameled flower sculptures show a world of nature that is ordinarily unseen and always in a state of change.
