Arthur Halvorsen's Profile

About

I grew up in Braintree MA, went to Maine College of Art in Portland ME and after college I have come home by returning to my roots in Briantree. I make my work at Mudflat Studios in Somerville MA where I am a resident artist.

I use low fire earthenware that has an amazing history for being used in Europe. I use it along with bisque molds that I find out in the world. Finding the pieces out in the world is an important part of my process being found in second hand shops, department stores and yard sales. I recreate them in a repetitive manor that I see as a sort of a printmaking process. I love using the glaze not only serving as a function to make the piece functional, but also as an additive decoration feature.
