These tumblers are beautiful! I love the undulations and textures both aesthetically, and because they feel great to hold. The shipping was very fast, and Bob was delightful to work with.
FUNCTIONAL & DECORATIVE HANDMADE CERAMICS
I craft pieces that are aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable to the user. My pottery is influenced by life experiences and the shapes, forms, textures and colors in my environment. I explore ways to communicate my touch by transforming clay creating individual qualities in each piece. There are two series that I am currently working on. The "Sand & Surf" series combines the tangible qualities of texture, color, movement and patterns in nature. The "Cloud" series explores the way light interacts with textures on a white surface creating movement through the changing values in shadows.
I am drawn to the physical qualities of clay and its interaction with others. Drinking something warm in a mug, passing a bowl, sharing an appetizer on a platter, arranging flowers in a vase or visually appreciating a vessel. These types of collaborations inspire me as they connect individuals to ceramic forms. The master potter Warren Mackenzie once said, “It is only when the user feels the presence of the hand of the potter that communication truly exists.”
Welcome to Bob Petersen Pottery. As a studio potter & ceramics instructor in Atlanta, GA I hand craft all of my pieces in my home studio. I create both functional & decorative ceramics using porcelain clay and non-toxic glazes. Enjoy! Bob
