The Ceramic Art Pieces

On his web site Craig states:”The foundation and inspiration for my pottery lies in ancient traditional techniques.  My ceramic works span traditional to abstract in form influenced by the Southwest Native Americans. Each piece is hand constructed using the coiling method striving for unique minimal organic forms.  The irregular surface is further refined by paddling and scraping in preparation for final sanding which occurs after the piece has become bone dry. To complete the surface, some works remain bare resulting in a matte finish; others have a luster finish created by smooth stone burnishing.”

These vases are between 20 and 24 inches tall.  They appear to be fusions of three or six vase parts.  Very impressive appearance.
