About

What do you mean "KICKED AND THROWN"?

The name of my pottery studio is first and foremost derived from pottery jargon. I work on a traditional kick wheel, made simply of wood, bricks and steel. The momentum of the wheel is garnered by KICKING the larger wheel at the bottom. With the wheel spinning, a person can then THROW their pots. Throwing is the term used for making pots on a wheel. This expression comes from the fact that the balls of clay are actually thrown onto the wheel hard enough so that they adhere well while being formed. I actually kick and throw as I make my clay pieces.

But I also kick, punch and throw people around too. No, no one gets hurt in the process! I practice and instruct the traditional Korean martial art known as Kuk Sool Won.

I believe these two aspects of my life compliment each other well. The balance and calm I find in the clay improves my efforts in the dojang. The strength and fitness gained there make working on the kick wheel easier. Also, I find that the principles inherent in each discipline can be translated readily to the other.

And so the name KICKED & THROWN.

    I am the shop owner of Kicked and Thrown Pottery Studio. I have been making and selling stoneware pots for 20 years. After throwing the pots on my wheel, I often embellish them with hand-building techniques to make each item unique.

Welcome to my Etsy site! I believe clay pots are more sensual and comfortable in your hand than any other type of container. Drinking from a stoneware mug or eating out of a hand thrown bowl enriches the experience.

I throw my pots on a traditional kick wheel, which gives each piece a more natural, organic rhythm. Having not just my hands, but also my feet directly involved in the process brings a complete connection to the work. I am meticulous with each step of the way, spending additional time either with detailed brushwork, carving designs into the clay or sculpting images onto it. Geometrical patterns and symbolic representations of natural elements are often depicted in my work.

I hope you enjoy my pots, as each piece is unique. Thanks for taking the time to look.
