    Three Mugs

    Hand built, red clay, underglaze, glaze, and glaze, cone 5

    "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."

    "The dimensional sculptures and intricate details by Chris Theiss are made from white ware and vitreous slip, Theiss's sculptures of extreme perspectives create unique views of worlds that could exist and also investigates the existing world around us. Each piece is visually enriched with sgraffito, a ceramic technique that involves carving and scratching through a colored slip revealing the surface underneath."
