This week I was most fortunate to acquire a beautiful porcelain pot from the studio of Tim Christensen-Kirby. Tim begins by either throwing a vessel on the wheel or building it from slab. Once dried, he further refines the shape by filing and sanding. Then it is covered with a black slip into which he inscribes his drawings. Always based in nature, his designs are thoughtfully conceived and executed. Once fired, the design is permanent and the result is a truly unique piece of art.
