Stephen Grimmer

Mediums: Ceramics

My work in porcelain stems from my love of the sacred architecture of the Islamic world. So much of what I find fascinating about form and surface in pottery is embodied in this great tradition: from the stacking, subversion, and juxtaposition of geometric forms, to the obsessive articulation of surface with color and texture.

My stubborn insistence on making functional pots stems in part from my belief in the value of domesticity, a love of cooking and serving good food and drink, and the power that beautiful functional objects have to add aesthetic enrichment to daily life.
