Stop, Drop, and Roll: A Dropped Pot Leads to an Interesting New Form

Posted On November 2, 2011 15 Comments

One day as Rick Berman was transporting a board full of soft leatherhard pots around his studio, a pot on the end of the board lost the fight with gravity and tumbled to the floor. Instead of just tossing it in the scrap bucket, Rick decided to drop it on the other side to see what would happen. When he blew air into the flattened pot, the result was a form he really liked and now deliberately creates. In today’s post, Rick explains how he refined this process and now creates his rolled pots.
