Hand building affords unique versatility, a freedom all its own. Set apart from wheel throwing, hand built forms are unconstrained by symmetry and conformity. Hand building lends itself to organic free-flowing forms while simultaneously daring the creator to corral its wild nature into manicured geometry. See the work of liberated hands.
The rhythm of the spinning wheel echos the pulse of a beating heart. With each revolution comes another breath inhaled and released, another form’s fuzzy shape brought into crisp focus. A new earthen life emerges from between the fingers of clay-streaked hands. See terrestrial life rising from the wheel.
