Brian Reed Pottery

I enjoy throwing elegant forms that mimic nature in flowing lines that move from one element to another. Elegant and moving forms within a classicaly asian style. I work primarily in porcelain and work in maintaining a flowing form while exacting a precise angle to be both pleasing to look at and handle. I like the interplay of the exact form and the flowing textures; You can see that in the chatter bowls. I have been working in some stoneware to really open up the possibilties of a truely earthbound clay body. I have expanded my color palet to those earth tones and browns that highlight the tradition of earthenware clay bodies.

Traditionally most of my work are cheerful colors and complement the form so I tend to use Celadon, and accent colors like blue and red to create a pleasing functional piece.
