JASON STANLEY HALL
My love of surface is the most evident characteristic of my work. I am fascinated by the mark making potential that the clay surface provides. I am inspired by Ceramics long history of functional use. While I work at the wheel, I strive for the presence in my pottery of complex subtleties of color and texture that occur in landscape, conversation, music, and architecture. The upstate of South Carolina with its lush green landscape and red clay scars left by the perpetual construction also inspire my forms and palette.
