My clay hand-built and wheel thrown forms may include other materials such as copper, iron or glass. Raku is my process. I've yet to find a process as exciting and satisfyingly real as the traditional carbon blacks and white crackle glazes.
I use stoneware clay with high fire glazes and oxides to create both free standing and framed images.
I used to be an auto mechanic, now I'm a full time potter. My pottery are mostly thrown on the potter's wheel in sections, altered, and assembled with some slab made parts. I do not cast nor use a mold of any kind.
My slip cast forms are geometric and clean; handles and surfaces are kept very, very simple. The pure surfaces without ornamentation emphasize the materiality of clay and glaze; a red clay body adds warmth and life.
I strive to make pots others will enjoy using. My craft as a potter allows me to both create and embellish. The potter's wheel is my chosen tool for creating clean, classic, and uncomplicated porcelain vessels dressed in intricate pattern.
This work takes inspiration from the beginning of the industrial revolution--a time when things were mass-produced but not fully mechanized. It was a moment These pieces embody the quirky nature of discovery and reflect a desire to revisit the past.
My passion is to make pots for people to use. My current work attempts to synthesize the causal and spontaneous traditions of pottery with a modernist and contemporary design sensibility.
My work is wheel thrown or slab built porcelain, sculpted and carved, glazed black copper and high fired gas oxidation
I make wheel thrown functional porcelain. It is single fired to ^8 oxidation. My work has always been a slow evolution of form and surface and includes drinking vessels, pitchers, teapots, plates, bowls, covered jars and vases.
My pieces are inspired by nature, textiles and architectural patterns with a strong focus on functionality and good design. Knowing my work will be used by others for celebrating or seeking simple comfort, gives me a sense of connection and purpose.
Wheel thrown and hand built earthenware "Organic Possibilities ".
We have been working together in clay for over 40 years. Each piece moves back and forth between the two us to complete all of the intricate steps involved in our work.
Gregg makes his mid-century inspired pieces by carving the designs into hand thrown ceramics.
I create sculptural ceramic representations of common objects. These sculptures look like memories, or perhaps objects seen through a filter.
Hand built, carved, and painstakingly glazed ceramic sculpture and wall sculpture. Drawing on architectural influences, fabric design & modern ceramics, these elements mix to create Modern Artifacts.
Throwing is my primary forming method, my newest work relies on a variety of hand building techniques as well. I use traditional glazes along with original formulas. The glazes, including celadon and copper red, are all fired in reduction.
I design and create ceramic wall installations. Environmental and urban textures, and handbuilt ordinary objects serve as my subject matter. I use repetition, size, shadows, and color to compose a body of work that blurs the lines between 2/D and 3/D.
