Bob Kinzie, Ceramic Artist and Instructor
BOB KINZIE Artist Statement
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.
