Meditative Patterns Marked in Time
“I am interested in human contradictions, duality, paradox, juxtaposition, yin and yang… I use pattern to activate, mark time and record human activity. I use glaze to imply movement, passion and both are used to imply water and wind. My desire is to make vessels that are alluring, elicit a reaction and perhaps present a paradox.”
For more than 35 years, fine art ceramist, Harris Deller, has examined the form and structure of the ceramic vessel, along with analyzing the medium of pottery and its place in the world. The ceramist says, at times, it is a balance between a spiritual adventure and meditation.
