Natural Elements Pottery pieces have slight variations in texture, pattern, and glaze colors, that only occur due to the natural variations in the pottery making and firing techniques of each particular piece. This is extremely important, because, if every finished pottery piece looked exactly the same, it would take away from the natural beauty, and creativeness of each piece. Slight imperfections and variations are to be expected, and is what drives our influence to purchase beautiful pieces of unique handmade Pottery.
Shown below is a perfect example of the slight different variation of glaze color, texture, and pattern, that each pottery piece may have.
have lived among the woods of Western Massachusetts for almost twenty
years. Over that time I have tended a large and rather miraculous
garden; a companion of sorts throughout season upon season. Whether I
am looking across the yard, walking to my studio, collecting vegetables
and flowers, or crouched down pulling out small weeds, I find myself
constantly awe-struck by the visual interplay of color, texture,
pattern and form before me. This natural canvas is ever changing,
fleeting, and unique. As a potter, I take great joy in creating a form,
composing a surface,
juxtaposing those same elements, and challenging my own artistic vision
and technique. Whether the surface becomes the wall of a vessel, the
finial for a teapot cap, or the foot of a bowl, I use the clay as the
medium for expressing that uniqueness, attempting to capture and
reflect a particular moment in time. Natural Elements is a body of work
that combines my love of nature with
my interest in producing pottery that is both beautiful and functional.
Part of the true joy of creating functional art is in the handling and
daily interaction with a finished piece of pottery. It is my hope that
each piece carries to you a piece of that joy, bringing it into your
home and into your life!" Christy Knox
