My pottery came well packaged and on time. It is stunning and absolutely beautiful. I have received many compliments from friends and family. It is a treasure and will be admired forever.

A custom order in process. The order is for only one piece but I always make more than one in case of a mishap. Of course I'll have extras to sell on Etsy.

About

Decorative and functional ceramics by Lance Timco

I have been an artist/potter for over 38 years. I have worked for a number of production potters in the Western USA and have taught in Texas, California, Washington and Colorado. I enjoy the exchange of ideas, concepts and methodology with fellow artists. I have traveled extensively throughout Mexico, Central America, Europe, Japan and New Zealand. My work is exhibited in my studio, on-line and in galleries.

Pikes Peak Community College:
I am a faculty member and the ceramics chair at Pikes Peak Community College teaching all levels of ceramics.

Artist Statement:
I was first attracted to ceramics because of the joy I saw in the making. I delight in the knowledge gained of the past through the discovery of vessels and shards. I enjoy problem solving and seeking answers to complex questions of which the creation of ceramic objects lends itself. I produce functional and decorative stoneware vessels that may be glazed, ash glazed, Raku, faux-Raku, saggar or multi-fired pieces.

I begin my creative process with the rhythmic wedging of clay as I contemplate the series of forms to come. Using my own traditions, through a blend of concentration and relaxation, I find harmony in the forming, decorating and the finishing of each piece. I may draw a line, dip, pour or spray a glaze to create line with a variety of surface qualities. The intention is to provoke a tactile and visual intimacy, inviting contemplation. The concepts start in my heart, are created with my hands and in passing to the viewer, I hope that these sensibilities are transmitted from their hands to their heart.
