Stoneware and Porcelain Pottery
Potter Larry Spears creates functional and decorative
reduction-fired porcelain and stoneware pottery. He
brings a rich color palette to his wares with a wide variety of glazes and
glazing techniques. As a primarily self-taught potter, Larry has been
working at his craft for over 20 years. Larry’s work is shown
primarily in his studio, at various juried art shows during the year, and at
numerous galleries in the USA.
My work with clay focuses primarily on the aspect of correlating functional form with contemporary design. The majority of the work if thrown with several pieces incorporating hand-built appendages into their design. I utilize various glazes and glazing techniques, with surface decoration to embellish the exterior of each piece. The work is reduction-fired in a 45 cubic foot down-draft kiln during an approximate 15 hour cycle. The work continues to evolve around the simple correlation between function and form. Capturing the innate integrity of each piece is perhaps the most challenging part of the process. Hopefully, the end result is a piece that can become a part of and enrich someone’s lifestyle.
