Inspired by the surroundings of New York, John Born creates. With reference drawn to Cycladic pottery and the great 20th century sculptors his work has a primitive and grounding aura. Valuing the importance of a physical connection to nature and the material he slowly sculpts the piece using a stoneware clay usually used for sculpture
The surface is left unglazed and the microscopic cracks have been enhanced using a red iron oxide, giving the piece a beautiful depth and personality. The inside is glazed but does not have the possibility of holding water.
Working out of Wedge Ceramics in Brooklyn, John has a BFA in sculpture and has studied ceramics at Greenwich House Pottery.
