Farnaz Sabet was born and raised in Tehran, Iran, where he was exposed to both political and social unrest. Farnaz moved to the United States to pursue a college degree at the age of twenty-one. He attended Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California, with the intention of graduating with a degree in graphic design. However, after taking a beginning ceramic class, he changed his major to Ceramics and Illustration, and after obtaining his Associate’s degree he transferred to California State University, Northridge, where he finished his Master of Arts degree, finding an elusive balance between form and surface. Farnaz received his Master Of Fine Arts from Claremont Graduate University. He currently works at University of Southern California as Ceramic lab technician and teaches Raku firing at Pierce College, Woodland Hills. He has exhibited at several venues including California State University Northridge, Antelope Valley College, Sahara Gallery, and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art.
