"I am inspired by the thought of someone using my pottery. That makes me excited to work." These motivations are from South Carolina based artist, Darin R. Gehrke. Darin makes pottery forms that are both soft and bold, architectural and natural. We especially love how Darin adds dimension to his pottery through speckled clay, faceted surfaces, slip brushwork, and lively glazes.
