I ordered a custom piece from Lance in memorial of a friend's beloved show horse. Lance was so easy to work with and the piece is stunning. Lance definitely went the extra mile by sending me pictures throughout the process and writing the horse's name and dates on the bottom. I'm so pleased with the purchase and the recipient is thrilled.

It is nice, the color transition is pretty smooth with minor horse hair lines.

Beautiful bowl. Great serving size. My only complaint is the copper red glaze isn't consistent all the way around. The coloring looks like there is a huge permanent shadow on the back side.

About

Decorative and functional ceramics by Lance Timco

MFA University of Dallas 1991
MA University of Dallas 1989
BFA Stephen F. Austin State University 1981

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.
