About the artist
 

"My pots have always been about function. Because I intend my teapot to be used, it can't dribble; the lids on my jars must fit properly; a mug has to snuggle nicely in the hand. After function comes appearance. I draw inspiration from tidal movements and the sea and even man-made objects. My work references the subtle differences between two environments; the man-made and the natural. I use the contrast between the soft and luminous colors of nature and the at times virulently harsh colors of our cityscapes. The clay body itself showcases nature's soft, growing, impermanent structures while simultaneously illustrating the harshness and longevity of man's stone and metal construction. Nature's changing and fluid ways are very apparent here in the Northwest, and living with my wife Megan in Bellingham,Washington on our sailboat affords me inspiration every day. I want people to use my pottery to have their every day lives enriched in the same way, whether it is by a favorite bowl or a
handmade mug for coffee each morning. I have been a professional potter for ten years, but I consider myself a craftsman first, and an artist second. My goal is to make affordable art that people can use to enhance everyday living." ~ Jeremy Noet.
