Footed Bowl


David Stuempfle Seagrove, NC 

"My work is at the intersection of traditional art and contemporary studio pottery. I have been influenced by extensive travel in Europe and Asia and by studying historical and contemporary American pottery in order to create work that is unique to me. Using local clays connects me to the geology and ceramic culture of the area.

Two of the kilns are crossdraft kilns and are approximately 30 feet long and are fired twice a year. Each firing lasts about five days to build up natural ash glazed surfaces on the work. Most of the pottery does not have any applied glaze so the surface markings are entirely the result of the clay and firing."
