Mugshot Monday with Adam Field
Today for Mugshot Monday, we have the beautiful intricately carved piece by Adam Field. As a long-term Artist in residence at The Archie Bray Foundation, Adam creates both these delicately carved porcelain pieces (like the mug shown below) and large traditional Korean Onggi . Watching him make the Onggi using the traditional method is fascinating, but seeing the intricate patterns he creates on his porcelain work is mind boggling!
Adam says this about his work: "I work toward a clean aesthetic that celebrates the masterful simplicity of antique Far Eastern pottery, while retaining the modest utility of colonial American wares. The surface of my pottery is meticulously carved with intricate designs that borrow from nature and incorporate the human touch. Much of the carving on my work is informed by the pattern languages found in indigenous fiber art".
