Transformation thru Stoneware.
That’s what does it for me... beginning with a lump of clay and
working it into a pottery form that has it’s own voice. A simplistic glimpse
into the Creator’s point of view and a direct parallel with His
relationship with us.
I know it may sound like spiritual mumbo jumbo, but it honestly isn’t.
You’re reading the thoughts of a pretty average guy that likes being
a dad and husband, watches espn way too much, and would play video games
for a living if he could figure out a way to get paid for it. I’m
simply a man that can bear witness to the changes that a loving God can
make from the inside out. For me, pottery is a gift from God that I’m
intended to use for His purposes. Period.
My job as a potter is simply to tell you stories through stoneware. The
stories range from how we named our dog, to visual stories about how different
portions of a piece relate to each other, to personal stories that are
interlaced with snippets from my own spiritual journey. My stoneware “pots”
are tangible representations of parts of my not-so-visible inner self
and I’m meant to put ‘em out there for you to see.
Please take a look around & give a shout with any questions. Thanks
for stopping by. pba
