THE JANE AND LEONARD KORMAN FAMILY PRIZE FOR EXCELLENCE IN CLAY

My craft as a potter allows me to both create and embellish. The potter's wheel is my chosen tool for creating clean, classic, and uncomplicated porcelain vessels dressed in intricate pattern. The pure white canvas of this clay provides a striking contrast to the layers of liquid black slip that coat my surfaces. After all layers are applied, I sgraffito the entire surface with a small loop tool to expose the clay and bring my imagery to life.

David Eichelberger

Lincoln, NE

The objects I make are simultaneously an anthropological study and an artistic endeavor, and incorporate an attempt to understand the world we live in, through making. My work has been informed by particular objects, including Japanese Mingei, or folk craft. I use surfaces that refer to a variety of sources, and include shiny glazes and polished slips. By focusing on a rudimentary treatment of the surface, the form of an object I make takes center stage.

Sandra Byers

Rock Springs, WI

Exploring form and texture as they interplay with light is the current focus of my work. Using fine, high fired porcelain, I form each piece individually by hand building, pinching, and carving. I am trying to find simplicity and calm in an increasingly complex world.

I throw pots with rims, weights and proportions that satisfy me. Stoneware glazes change color as they get thicker. I spray multiple layers of wood ash and glazes over the ridges and valleys of my forms to create integrated timeless pieces used to enhance daily living.

Teresa Chang

Philadelphia, PA

I believe that achieving true functionality in craft is a way of bringing beauty to everyday life. I also love food, so, as a ceramist, my passion for tableware is natural. The complexity of the teapot vessel presents the highest challenge of combining function, form and, ultimately, beauty.

Paul Eshelman

Elizabeth, IL

My clay vessels order and dignify human life. I actively utilize elegant geometry in my forms and leave areas of the red stoneware clay unglazed for a visual and tactile contrast.

Alexandra N. Geller

East Hampton, MA

My studies of ceramics of ancient cultures inspire both great appreciation for the medium and have been integral in shaping my aesthetic. Pivotal to my designs and throwing technique is making pieces light in weight and satisfying to hold. In the well-known dictum of form following function, each vessel created is to be both purposeful and visually satisfying.

Robert K. Green

Conway, MA

I have been a potter for over twenty five years. Prior to studying ceramics I earned an undergraduate degree in sculpture. I believe this has led me to make the pots I make. The shape of the pot comes first for me rather than the function. The shapes of my pots are drawn from nature as well as the human form.

Michael Hamlin-Smith

Charlotte, NC

I am inspired by nature-the stamens and stigmas of flowers as well as the seeds of the plants. The clean profiles of Scandinavian mid-century aesthetic is also the essence I want to capture in my work. The clay vessels and bowls are made of red stoneware clay. All pieces are designed to enhance home environments as well as exhibiting the beauty of flowers and floral arrangements.

Ani D. Kasten

Takoma Park, MD

I create one-of-a-kind and small groupings of sculptural vessels that explore the meeting point between natural and man-made worlds. The forms integrate these divergent sensibilities into a composed landscape, such as a stand of bamboo-like, truncated cylinders, perforated with windows to look like corroded skyscrapers, or a simple form such as a sphere, marked on its surface with an off-center, wandering imprint, like bird tracks in the sand.
