These techniques are all aspects of the forging process & forging is the most basic way to define our method of creation.

Simon Van der Ven Ceramics at the 38th Annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

Simon Van der Ven, Lincolnville, ME; ceramics. Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. So often, people tell me,”I just want to touch your work.” I love hearing that.

Lulu Fichter ceramics at the 38th annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

Lulu Fichter, Peterborough, NH; ceramic. Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. 'I have found that living and working in the space between clay’s opposites to be a challenge that continues to motivate me. Clay is cool and moist yet requires the fiery heat of the kiln. It's soft and malleable yet rigid and brittle. Clay is inert and inorganic, a mixture of silicas and aluminas, yet it is also in some ways alive and unpredictable. Whether throwing, pinching, slicing, piercing or embossing, the sensual feel of the porcelain enhances... [Lire la suite]
