Chris has been making pots since graduating from the University of Northern Iowa in 2006 and is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Currently, he utilizes woodfiring and soda firing to complete his pottery.
Chris says, "I create functional vessels with active surfaces that are achieved through layering clay, glazes, and overglazes. through atmospheric firing processes, these materials mature and bond with the vessels to bring depth and balance. Edges are highlighted, form is enhanced, microcrystals grow, and materials blend. It is through layers of surface that compliment the form that I encourage touch, interaction, and use of my wares.
I create vessels that are meant for daily use. Through investigations of form and layered surface treatment, I achieve elegance and stability within my pottery."
