At Hitomi McKenzie making pots is my art, I make them for people to use. I believe what my pots would attract those who appreciate beauty and function working in harmony. I hope their forms give the user a sense of joy.
My work is of Porcelain Ceramics, a set of functional shape and individual pieces. It is important to me to create communication, a ‘conversation‘ between form and surface. In my intimate relationship with each individual piece of work becoming an extension of how I respond to movement of the wheel and the clay.
The method I employ is first throwing, then dissecting and distorting the shape, which for me is an innovative way of making and producing original designs.
The throwing rings are exaggerated to give the impression of fold fabric and a shiny transparent glaze gives highly polished finish, making it a stainless and durable very practical products which are microwave and dishwasher safe.
