    "I seek harmony in my surroundings, moments of respite from the rush and concerns of daily life. I find a sense of calm in the emotion expressed in a song, muted colors in nature and art, and drinking coffee from a handmade cup. The synthesis of my research in post-modern architecture, abstract painting, and experimental music culminates in my utilitarian pottery. Each of these influences contain the element of abstraction, an austerity and restraint in form, and an intentional trajectory for moving the body, eye, or psyche through space. Grounded architecturally inspired forms communicate stability, while cantilevered components act as a counterpoint to their mass. Visual chords of color establish a harmonized background. Architectural features punctuated with vivid color conduct the viewer’s eye around the piece and settle into a mellow mid-tempo beat.
    "The functional parameters of the vessel allow me to achieve two important goals: offering individuals an interactive experience through use, and questioning the aesthetic conventions of the archetypal pot within the framework of utility. A surprising rendition of a familiar pot strikes the viewer with a feeling of discovery, enticing a closer investigation through sight, touch, and interaction. Geometric forms combined with painted color become utilitarian 3--D Color Field paintings. Vessels and groupings reference skyline and double as musical phrasing or waveforms of sound. Both architects and potters are fundamentally engaged in designing functional space. Architecture holds people; people hold pottery. Like the sentiment in a song, I instill calmness in my vessels to be experienced through use and contemplation within people’s hands and homes."

My forms are defined by functional simplicity and the white surface of each piece is decorated with abstract designs in blues, browns, and grays. I am also exploring the contrast of the white porcelain surface with a matte black glaze. The development of this glaze has allowed me to explore new forms of decoration on the clay surface. Along with the white/black contrast, I am using a matte/glossy contrast, in techniques of dripping, pouring, and spattering.

    Richard Shaw
    Sardine Teapot (Mustard jar lid and fish head spout)

    Glazed porcelain with overglazed details

    "Richard Shaw is one of the most respected and collected artists in contemporary American ceramics. Shaw works by creating a kind of clay assemblage, in which he takes ordinary, everyday objects -- old books, rusted paint cans, used pencils, watercolor paints, playing cards, and so on -- and through a ceramic process that includes plaster molds, porcelain slip, screenprinted decals, and glazes, turns them into extraordinary works of art. This transformation employs the traditional method of trompe l’oeil (French for “fool the eye”) to create the illusion that the objects in Shaw‟s sculptures are made of anything but the ceramic with which they actually are composed.1 His work is technically astounding, and it deals with many themes: not only trompe l‟oeil, but also humor, narrative, assemblage, and the differences between art and craft." - Michael Schwager, “Casting Illusions: The Art of Richard Shaw,” Sonoma County Museum

    "My purpose in making pottery is to create ultimately functional, utilitarian ware. It is work to be used comfortably and easily, all the while maintaining a sense of movement, posture, and play that I feel is as necessary as the function itself. This sense of play emerges as I move and shape the clay, and through the loosely drawn polka dots and stripes that I quickly render in glaze.
    "I am fascinated with the wood and soda kilns’ glorious variables and the way they react to the undulating surfaces of my work and its applied slips or glazes. These atmospheric phenomena enhance the organic nature of my work. "

    "The idea of vessels and containment has been very important to me. I have created many vessel forms and painted images on them that establish a dramatic space that is both real and surreal and of course I hope that the story I try to tell breaths a similar force of life into my work. I make decision on what forms to make instinctively. The birdcage, bird nest, terrarium, perfume jar and lab glass jar are vessels in real life that are curiously made out of a material that one can see through, wire or glass, so one simultaneously sees the outside form and inside space.

    Anticlastic and synclastic raised brass vessel with black patina, sterling silver detail,steel and walnut handles

    "Inspired by my trip to China, I created this double brass teapot, the first of a larger series. It was 5am as I sat drinking tea on an overnight train from Suzhou traveling to Beijing. I watched cornfields pass outside my window for hours, until out of nowhere, there was a skyscraper. There was nothing between the low, calm, beautiful farmland to prepare you for the large stark concrete building towering above. This moment stuck with me for the rest of the trip, forcing me to think about how the culture in china right now is a flow from ancient practices and architecture into modern ideas and control."

    Oval Bowl

    Hand thrown and altered with new base added, Limoges porcelain, clear and yellow glazes, reduction fired

    "I have always been interested in objects, ever since my grandmother encouraged me to use her fluted bone china teacups and saucers. They were powder blue with a whisper of gold on their delicate rims and I loved their weight, their elegance and their gentle sound when placed together. My early memories of these beautiful vessels and their use have inspired and informed my work for more than 30 years. Science and music were my initial areas of learning, but my attention swiftly diverted after my first entrancing contact with clay. I immediately realized that making pots was what I wanted to do for ever. I studied at the Harrow Studio Pottery Course in London. Intense and demanding, focused and structured, we concentrated on the making of high quality inventive functional objects. The structured working practices, high expectations and inventive questioning, similar to science and music, were familiar and attractive to me. I excitedly explored many techniques and ideas but throwing always remained my technique of choice. I learned to recognize the wonder and mystery of objects – their power to incite a response in me, to move and stimulate me, to draw me towards them and to dwell permanently in my memory. Studios in London and then Melbourne contained the development of my work through coloured and painted earthenware and eventually to reduction fired porcelain. Gradually new approaches to making emerged, motivated by a search for simplicity and quietness. A lovely soft luminous clay body provided surfaces that no longer required decoration to conceal them and new forms developed – circular altered to oval with softly moving edges, a sprung tension recalling their thrown origins."

    Erosion Series: Bowls

    Inlaid Stain, porcelain

    The Erosion Series of bowls have been cast from old English jelly moulds and vintage cut glass bowls. Each bowl is slip cast and is created by a build up of layers of stained porcelain slip and then after removal from the mould, sanded back to reveal the different colours of each layer. The resulting pattern becomes somewhat organic; not precise, as it develops with the sanding away of layers, leaving behind only some areas of each coloured layer. This technique is a representation of how the physical geographical landscape is developed over time; with sediment build up and compression followed by years of weathering and erosion. The process also acts as a metaphor for the development of the Australian culture, which has been built up by additions of layers of other cultures and then slowly eroded away to leave a colourful pattern of multiculturalism. Because of the making process, each piece is entirely unique.

    Soft paste porcelain, nerikomi technique

    Various sizes

    "Dorothy Feibleman's spare porcelain forms -- precise and finished to translucent, weightless perfection -- elevate the art of pattern making to an extraordinary degree. In Feibleman's hands, the ancient Japanese technique of nerikomi -- in which ceramic objects are decorated with patterns created by combining different, often differently colored, clays -- has been reinvented through the introduction of ideas drawn from glassmaking, mosaic art, jewelry making and other disciplines. Obsessively ornamented, with patterns that multiply across their surfaces, Feibleman's most striking works are reminiscent of objects as diverse as blue-and-white Delftware, central Asian metalwork and printed Indian textiles." - Scott Norris

Picasso and Pie will be served. We invite you to read the full story that inspired Picasso and Pie here.
