Description

Description

Form versus function is a dichotomy much discussed in the realm of pottery. Where should the emphasis be placed? If function wins out, is a piece still considered art?  At what point does form take over function? I approach my work as a studio potter with a function-first frame of mind—form is a result of its objects function. This does not cancel out consideration of form or shape. Rather, I find that a pot is most truly beautiful when it has achieved its utmost functionality. A mug that feels good in the hand is, by extension, a mug that is pleasing to look at. I use simple undecorated forms to achieve this in my work.

I learned my craft in Washington, DC and in Florence, Italy. I created RachaelPots in 2013 to sell my ceramics at craft fairs in New York City.

All RachaelPots ceramics are handmade and thrown on the potters wheel using a mid-range (cone 6) speckled stoneware clay and food safe cone 6 glazes fired in an electric kiln.  I work out of my Sunset Park, Brooklyn studio.
