Pottery by Richard Zeid
Functional and Decorative hand-thrown ceramics
As a graphic designer, I always strive to create elegant and simple solutions for my clients. I have also always been drawn to circles, and pottery, outside of my professional work, is all about the circle. The continuum, perfection of form, its abstract meanings. I am also drawn to working in a medium that is fluid, and clay is fluid, a thick viscous fluid, but fluid. Easily malleable, changed, worked, until complete.
While exploring pottery, I have made myself my client. My forms are simple, balanced and elegant. They reflect my aesthetic and principles as a designer in a three dimensional medium.
