NCECA  The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts - instagram takeover this week by Emerging Artist

2016 Emerging Artist Tom Jaszczak pottery is lovely. About his work Tom says ‘a successful pot has depth through making processes, it obtains humbleness through form and thoughtfulness in function. #emergingartist #nceca #pottery #handmadepottery #potteryhandmade #craft

Tom Jaszczak, NCECA emerging artist 2016 states “Slips, trimming lines, finger marks, edges, wad marks, and shadows capture a moment in time and tell more of the story. I want my pots to be grounded in form and have identity as a material. ...” EA Instagram take over for Tom. #emergingartist #pottery #sodafire #minnesotapotters #potter #handmade #craft #crafts #nceca

Tom Jaszczak 2016 NCECA Emerging Artist, collection of bowls. “I want my work to be pated down to the essentials and be truly useful. The cumulative journey of a pot tells the story and the story brings the user into the moment of making and firing”. #emergingartist #pottery #mingei #utilitarianpottery #sodafired #nceca

Tom Jaszczak - NCECA emerging artist 2016 - work is strongly rooted in two sources - traditional Minnesota pottery that he grew up admiring and the Mingei folk-art philosophy advocating the “hand-crafted art of ordinary people” . Here are some examples of Toms covered jars. #nceca #pottery #traditionalpottery #crafts #sodafired #emergingartist #emergingart

As my last post of this week-long NCECA Instagram takeover . . .I thought I'd share a little something more biographical. This is me @seanoconnell.pottery , the place I live (Red Lodge, MT), and where I work @redlodgeclaycenter . . I love where I live, where I work, and it's such a privilege to be able to share it with you! Thanks!

One of the more obscure resources I've come across over the years was Razzle-Dazzle camouflage aka disruptive camouflage . .. I made this body of work between 2013 -2017. . here are a few pieces along with some images of the razzle dazzle at the end. @seanoconnell.pottery #razzledazzle #disruptivecamouflage #instatakeover #contemporaryceramics #ceramicart #emergingartist2016 #functionalpottery

Here's one of my favorite pieces I've made from the last year . . . Wheel-thrown porcelain, underglaze wash, glaze, sand-blasted, gold lustre. Enjoy! @seanoconnell.pottery

In addition to making ceramic tableware . .I also do a bit of painting and drawing. Recently, I've been working with ink on paper, expressive and abstract mark-making. @seanoconnell.pottery

These have been two incredibly influencial pots in my own work. They have so many incredible qualities . . . Dynamic surfaces that skillfully and seamlessly utilize the boundaries of the forms profiles. Historic Islamic ceramics represent a rich vein of material expertise and artistic vision . . . Love em!!!
