Ian Meares

The abstract expressionists and the minimalists had it right when they concluded that sometimes the relationships between color, texture, shape, and luminosity were content enough. These pots by Florida artist Ian Meares are evidence to that conclusion. Also, I am really feeling the swatches of color thing right now. It's just making me go ga-ga.

Nicole Kowalski Aquillano

I have not felt so excited by fresh ceramic work since I found Michelle Summers' work. I am totally in awe of these pieces by Nicole Kowalski Aquillano. She is currently a masters candidate at RISD and her work embodies so many of the things that I love about clay- freedom of shape, texture, pattern, and color. I'm so excited to start following her work!

I have to admit... Lately I am really having a hard time not having an outlet for my ceramic work. I am dying to break out some of the bisque I brought with me on the move and just start painting it with my underglaze collection. Only trouble is, is that I have no idea when I will be able to glaze fire it. We'll see what happens. 

It's just that I am so focused on my textile work right now... in fact I have a Kickstarter project in the works that I can't wait to share with you guys... I just don't have the time to drag out all my ceramic supplies. Eeeek! Maybe I can figure some clay time in somewhere. Maybe.

Jérôme Galvin

Now, I think you might have guessed I'm a sucker for anything art brut. These pots by French artist Jérôme Galvin totally hit the spot. I love the reference to blue and white wares from Renaissance Europe, illuminated manuscripts, and oribe pottery from Japan. I love the fact that he effortlessly combines an attention to detail with a crudeness of hand and application. Yum.
