MICHAEL  PONESS
“As a practicing architect, it is only natural that my work in ceramics is influenced by the discipline of architecture. I lean toward the functional side of clay versus the sculptural side. I tend to do lidded forms more than open forms. Something about roofs on buildings I suppose. Most pieces start out as wheel thrown cylinders that are then altered and shaped into ovals, squared boxes, jars, teapots, tea caddy’s, urns, etc. Aspects of architecture, such as, towers, arches, windows, hardware, surface texture, rhythm, color, pattern all find their way into my work.” — Michael Ponness
