Dana Bechert

Nottingham, PA

I hand throw all my work using porcelain. After coating the entire piece in black slip, I freehand carve original patterns into the surface of the unfired piece. With my carving tool I draw horizontal lines while the pot is rotating on the wheel, the rest is carved freehand without the use of rulers, stencils or guides. Designs are created intuitively directly on the surface of the piece. All functional one-of-a-kind work.
