Freiwald Art Pottery "all is art all is nature" the highway to the unconscious

Creator /Collector “There is nothing quite like it, when I am working on a piece, I feel truly energized”. My passion for this work requires well-designed concepts Creator /Collector “There is nothing quite like it, when I am working on a piece, I feel truly energized”. My passion for this work requires well-designed concepts to be meticulously crafted to the highest standards and to the best of my abilities. I am inspired by visceral nature and sometimes retreat into fantasy. My current art pottery pieces rely on emotional intensities, sometimes based on the brutality and beauty found in nature and imagination. The forms are hand thrown or sculpted and the glazes are full of texture and character. I employ sintered, born of the ashes glazes including my phoenix iridized luster, fractured earth, glass, crater, and matte crystalline surfaces. Layered under glazes and bole paste applied in various painterly fashions unites depth and interest into the timeless beauty of the vessels. My art works are deeply rooted in tradition. I teach, study and love all styles of art including Jugendstil, Symbolist, Secession, Expressionism and Fantastic Mythology. My introspective searching for unknown horizons is a constant life journey as I am always welcoming the unknown and new. It is the quintessence; the resulting art pottery born of earth, fire, water and air that becomes transcendent and takes on a life of its own. (Read more)
