Robert Briscoe

"My pots must function, and equally important, they must be beautiful." - Bob Briscoe

He applies glaze on glaze in an intentionally painterly way to delineate forms. Briscoe's pots exude their clay beginnings, clay that has been obviously formed and transformed by hands and fire. The surfaces of his forms are robust and earthy, quietly connecting himself to the viewer.
