BOB KINZIE Artist Statement

February, 2008

My long years involved with the potters wheel recently includes experiments with the application of wet clay to a thrown cylinder which are then expanded from the inside, coupled with selective drying.

The resultant surface has elements of inadvertency reminiscent of the Mingei style.

Using a variation of tools on the wet clay gives me a variety of surprising textures, that keep me exploring for more.

By using these textured slabs I can create numerous vase forms by hand building with them.
