Ken Swinson Pottery

I can’t remember where I saw it, but Chagall made a beautiful vase.  Although it was a pot and not a painting, it looked like a Chagall.

Recently, I have been trying to focus on creating a uniform body of work.  I would like to develop a style that is unique to me and my experiences. 

While working in the pottery studio at ORVAG, I decided to alter one of my pots and approach it more like a canvas, and less like a form. 

Here is the result:


It isn’t fired yet, but you should see the two dogs running in the hills with a tree and house in the background.  

I hope to include it in the wood fire at the Artisan Center at Maple Creek next month.
