The Clay Studio

Mark Fickett Photography and Miscellanea

I visited The Clay Studio in Philadelphia yesterday, and saw some interesting ceramics.

angular glazing on pottery by David Crane

Angular glazing by David Crane; the forms were, to me, slightly bulky.

dimpled bowl by Shawn Spangler

Dimpled and lined surface by Shawn Spangler — enticingly strange, but not quite comfortable to hold for me.

sectioned pottery by Jeff Campana

Sectioned forms by Jeff Campana (also on Etsy), pleasing to the touch and attractively plant- or tortise-like.

salt-fired leafy designs by Brad Johnson

Salt-fired, silvered leafy designs by Brad Johnson (alternate).

birds by Chris Berti

Birds carved from found bricks by Chris Berti; other carving in bricks, drainpipe tiles, and beaver-cut logs.

I also saw — and recognized — some work by Ryan Greenheck, who taught the introductory wheel throwing class I took at UPenn.
