Alp Işın's Profile

About

Growing up in Turkey and visiting the Anatolian Civilizations Museum has influenced my work very deeply. My work is done solely with porcelain for the purpose of obtaining the most brilliant colors possible with my crystalline glazes. Formulating these technically-intensive glazes has become a way of reconciling myself with my early rebellion against the sciences, having had two physicists for parents; thus, my work represents a marriage of my interests in engineering and artistic craftsmanship. My passion for pottery rests not only in the enjoyment of the process but also knowing the porcelain becomes timeless as it comes out of the kiln. Knowing that I can pass on a work that will outlast almost any other human made object encourages me to endure the exacting nature of porcelain and gives me a tremendous sense of accomplishment and responsibility.
