Portfolio - Wayne Cardinalli Pottery

Almost all of my work originates on the potter's wheel. Many of the pieces I make are staunchly functional, but at times I depart from this to create pieces with more sculptural concern. However, there is not a clear line separating the two; rather, there is always an element of each on both. 

Regardless of the functional or sculptural intent of the work, the elements that remain constant are an exploration of direct gestural distortions of the freshly-thrown form, and a subtle painterly approach to the glaze surface.
