John Skelton







I love this pottery for a couple reasons-- One, the subtlety of the wax erosion patterns is so lovely and gentle. The patterns and texture are so simple but they add so much to the pieces. Two-- the wood-fired surface of his pots reminds me of all the things I love about a good shino: milky whites, blushing orange, and smokey trapped-carbon freckles. Yum. I think the two teapots are especially delicious. Skelton is also part of AKAR's 2010 Yunomi Invitational, so check him out there. Then check out hiss lovely library of video tutorials which include how to make a stacked box set, wax resist techniques, and altering a thrown bowl. How awesome of the artist to share with us!

Hi Jesse Lu, Thanks for your words, it always gives me encouragement to hear what people think of my work. I'd be glad to do a studio tour, or artist profile on Mud Bucket, just let me know what you need, and many many thanks for the invitation...
