Harrison McIntosh, ceramic artist. I was cruising the internets and came across a piece of pottery/ceramic that stopped me dead in my tracks. I have been paying more attention to pottery and ceramics lately but it is a whole other world that I am trying to learn about. Harrison McIntosh’s work is stunning, the gradients that are found along with detailed scribe work make for a breathtaking pice of art.
“Harrison McIntosh’s long career as a Los Angeles area ceramic artist spanned eight decades. From his modern approach to classical vessel forms in the 1950s, his work expanded to sculptural spheres floating on geometric chrome forms. Known for his strong sensual shapes, often enhanced by distinctive surface decoration of thin sgrafitto lines or rhythmic brush spots, his ceramics are held in numerous museum collections around the world.” http://www.amoca.org
