Pots in motion

The wheel turns.  That’s how a pot gets thrown.  The motion of the wheel enables the potter to make a symetrical round vessel.  Often the traces of the process are erased, throw lines smoothed out.

I’ve been interested in amplifying those process marks, exagerating them.  Leaving a permanent record of the fluidity of the clay, the movement involved in making.  For me, it can make the vessel dynamic, alive, exciting.

Each of these pots is an experiment.  Itself the record of a moment never to be repeated.
