Matthew Hyleck, Baltimore, MD
My goal is to create utilitarian pots for every day use; simple forms that speak primarily about functionality and the intimacy gained through daily use.
Marie Weichman, Houston, TX
It is important to me that each piece I create is embedded with both a sense of process and socially mindful purpose.
Nathan Prouty, Philadelphia, PA
Guided by visual clues, viewers must invent their own connections with and within my work, by calling upon previous associations and learned conventions.
Ehren Tool, Berkeley, CA
My work deals with the uneasy collision, and collusion, between military and civilian cultures. Firsthand knowledge of war is a huge burden that most people carry in silence.
Amy Santoferraro, Philadelphia, PA
I love that any silly li’l ole object can become charged with meaning, history, sentiment and the authority to tell stories.
Valerie Zimany, Appleton, WI
Nature employs strategies for survival in an environment that requires living forms to be strong yet resilient, attract yet repel, and endure through constant evolution.
Nielsen Amon/Ruby Levesque, Brooklyn, NY
Every artist dreams of being able to make a living from their work, not only as an endorsement of their vision, but as a vindication of all the hard work.
Gillian Parke, Durham, NC
I am interested in the conflict created by kitsch images on handmade objects.
Gwendolyn Yoppolo, Belmont, NY
Making pots is creating environments to contain our moments of reverie and nourishment.
MyungJin Choi, Philadelphia, PA
I am drawn to the bizarrely beautiful fractal images and perception of mathematics as a body of sterile formulas.
Jenni Brant, Lincoln, NE
Beauty has the power to make us more aware of the present moment and more aware of those we are sharing it with.
Alwyn O’Brien, Saltspring Island, BC, Canada
The contemporary ceramic object can be understood as a souvenir, a simultaneous overlay of our histories, our present and our presence.
Patrick Coughlin, Gainesville, FL
The pragmatism of the functional vessel is a strong metaphor for a life as practical and humble as farming.
Misty Gamble, Oakland, CA
These snapshot sculptures display my interest in questioning the perception of normalcy, morality and appropriateness, while examining human social behavior.
Jeremy Brooks, Philadelphia, PA
I first became interested in ceramics through my sister, who is a porcelain bead maker and jeweler. I would watch her work and was instantly drawn to the malleability of clay; how both tool and hand could so delicately shape it.
