About this Artist
"Whether executed as a three-dimensional form or as markings on a flat surface, my main concern is the line itself and how it relates to the space around it. I am devoted to the task of making objects from clay and feel that the clay itself is the most important component of my work. It's fitting that, since our environments are made from clay, my work should be also."
James Aarons makes ceramic objects that are intended to add dynamics and energy to our surroundings. Each is an item to interact and live with. Earthenware is an ideal clay body for achieving a balance of function, form, and color, and Aarons exploits it to its fullest.
Each piece begins as a ball of clay. Aarons feels strongly about making his works by hand, one at a time. The labor and natural slowness of the process add nuance to each piece by ensuring that no two works, while seemingly the same, are identical. Repetition of shape and texture is key to the ease of using an object, but as each is made individually, so it stands as an individual.» View the full artist page of James Aarons
