Candone Wharton

"My education is American, the firing technique is Japanese, the glaze influences are from Morocco, and the forms are inspired by ancient architecture and vessels."

Candone Wharton's first studio was on the island of Ibiza, Spain. Her resources were limited, her studio and kiln primitive. Her introduction to clay involved only the use of her hands and the simplest of tools.

Today she uses a slab roller and a few kitchen utensils to create textures on slabs and pinched bases. She then builds up the form with layers of coils that she's carved or textured with basket weave and block print designs. Her raku finish is an inspiration from her interest in the lusters of Moroccan pottery. A combining of techniques, influences, and cultures to make an art that is her own.
