Brandon Reese
Hoop on Birch

$1,200

About

Brandon Reese's Hoop on Birch is a contemporary abstract grey and brown ceramic sculpture made with salt glazed stoneware on a birch wooden block. This piece measures 7 x 13 and is priced at $1,200.00. Brandon Reese’s focus on experimentation and varying techniques relates to his belief that the best part of life is the process, “My art wears the fingerprints, cuts, dents and other texturing as a roadmap and documentation of its creation.” He works primarily with stoneware and porcelain. Reese’s most recent pieces combine salt glazed stoneware and reclaimed native wood. His work is predominately known for its simple, familiar forms created in a variety of methods and at such large scales that the pieces push the traditional boundaries of ceramic art.
