My FacePots as I call them are my most recent body of ceramic work. They are light-hearted and vivid images from my imagination. Each are created on the potter's wheel and altered by adding wet clay and carving the leather hard pot.
I usually don't have a preconceived idea of what they'll become, that is the magic that happens in the studio. They are all glazed with my own formulas inside and out so they can be used as a bud vase, or a holder for toothbrushes, pencils, chopsticks or for small kitchen utensils like wooden spoons. Of course they’re just nice on their own as small sculptures.
Be sure to visit my online FacePot Museum which shows scores of pieces in private collections. I can consider custom pieces as well, consider a depiction of a loved one (human or pet). I can also make Pet Urns with a likeness of your beloved.
There are a few others available on my ETSY site. etsy.com/shop/rickyoflunaparc
