About the Item

Vince Palacios (b.1961, Flint, Michigan) has been working in the fields of ceramics since 1992 and currently serves as Professor of the Ceramics Department at El Camino College in Torrance, California. Literally overflowing with bright colors and crackling textures, his work is a dance between awkwardness and expertise. The result is a controlled chaos of improvised forms and overlapping glazes, using classical techniques to add whimsy to a classic craft. “Each day I work is similar to each night that a comedian or performer does a routine. There are set ideas, techniques, and expectations; but each time something new emerges in response to external stimulus, or circumstance. I love improvisational work!” -Artist Statement "Potato Tree with Yellow Vines", Contemporary, Abstract, Ceramic, Sculpture

  • Contemporary Wood Fired Porcelain Jar Form, Design, Sculpture, Glaze, Ceramic
    By Perry Haas
    Located in St. Louis, MO
    Perry Haas is a ceramic artist making functional pottery and focusing on wood-firing techniques. Drawing from a love for the wood-fired ceramic surface, Perry looks to anticipate the manner in which ash in the kiln will collect in different arrays across the convex and concave surfaces of his gestural clay forms. “I approach making with a childlike spirit of experimentation and exploration. My work stems from a love of the wood fired ceramic surface, particularly how it evokes many beautiful natural phenomena. Like imagining the way wind gathers and deposits leaves on a landscape according to changes in topography, I anticipate the manner in which ash will collect differently on the convex and concave surfaces of my gestural forms. These functional pots are developed as a place for this surface to exist and to be enjoyed as a part of our daily life.”—Haas Contemporary Large Ceramic Jar...

  • Ceramic abstract sculpture: 'Seeking the Way'
    By Tony Moore
    Located in New York, NY
    My work is concerned with the relationship of humanity and nature. I conceive of an expanded concept of “Nature” as embodying all existence, both the seen and unseen, socio-political events, daily occurrences, as well as private intuitions that are made concrete through creative action. My objects are places of remembrance where multiplicities of associations take place. Most recently these have been concerned with issues of the human condition. “In recent ceramic Fire Paintings and Sculptures abstracted figures, made from cut twigs, are impressed into wet clay. As I investigated, the figures kept running, fleeing, tumbling, searching, moving away from and towards something else. They moved across landscapes, towards glowing buildings/edifices, systemized structures/societies, which both beckoned them and somehow dominated them. The figures were present, yet also in spirit form, floating and dissolving in diaphanous light and shimmering waters. Twigs became, fathers, mothers and children. They became surrogates, rather like a small child’s dolls, playing out a deeply psychological fiction of desperately moving toward “something”. Something hopeful, yet presently out of reach. Something eternally becoming …” Tony Moore is an English-American sculptor and painter represented in international museum collections including the Guggenheim Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Greenville Museum, San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Woodstock Artists Association & Museum, Art Museum of the U. of Memphis and ASU Art Museum, US and the Yorkshire Museum and Derby Museum, UK. He received a MFA in Sculpture from Yale University and is the recipient of prestigious awards, including a Louis Comfort Tiffany Award...
