Why do you buy handmade pottery?
Theresa – “There are many reasons why. It’s one of a kind, handmade art that typically is also functional. I enjoy supporting the tradition of the arts. I like to see and feel the potter’s hands in a piece.”
Chris – “I appreciate the procedure and dedication of years of disciplined practice to result in any piece I hold presently.”
How did you acquire a Lisa York piece of pottery?
"2019 20 Dirty Hands Tour, Joe Pinder’s shop, Pinder Pottery, Inc., Galena, Illinois."
What’s your favorite part about the Lisa York piece of pottery you own?
Chris – “I really love geometry and bright colors. Lisa’s red mug had such a striking color result, along with the way the mug was thrown to create the circular shape, but then the external walls were shaped into a tangent square surrounding the circular inner wall. It reminded me of certain famous children’s picture books many of us read when we were kids. Almost like an object in those books that was brought to three-dimensional life from the pages.”
Theresa – “I like that both pieces were wheel-thrown and then altered. Both are square, and in the case of the garlic jar, it also has a round lid. This makes the pieces unique, and I see the artist’s hands in the work.”
