Matthew A. Yanchuk Ceramics
Matthew Yanchuk begins these vibrant works by hand building or throwing the initial form on a potter's wheel. Afterwards, he creates a plaster cast of the piece and re-generates the form by slip casting--filling the mold with liquid clay to produce an incredible smoothness. After removing a vessel from the mold, Yanchuk hand paints it with either a freehand design or by using a wax-resist method.
The shape of the vessel often dictates the various elements of design. Concentric patterns interlaced with color produce striking contrast against the soft, angular edges.
