Caption: Urso, is a professor at the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology. His current body of work explores the theme "Being Human Being." His poetic interpretations of the figure, which begin as sheets of copper and are hammered into form, "eloquently depict the roles of prophets, guardians, ancestors, innocent women and simple men in the drama of birth, life and death."
