Marcus Bellon's Profile
I really enjoy making things from junk or re-purposing unusual items. Other then that....
I have a BFA from Western Oregon University where I studied ceramics and painting.
My interests in painting are mostly non-objective. I just can't stand there for hours and try to make something look photo-realistic... why not just take a picture? I'm much more concerned with relationships of color and form.
In ceramics I throw, slip-cast and hand build. I've implemented many firing techniques including raku, saggar and traditional/modern methods. I've sculpted large and small scale works. I'm still learning, but I do not consider myself a beginner. Even though I can, I do not make traditional pottery aside from the occasional mug.
