Trent Burkett at the Reynolds

 Surface... it's all about the skin of an object.
Form is fantastic, balance is a must... looks... well that's a matter of taste, but when you touch something, it's very much about the skin.


Hands enjoy their unique sense of taste just a much as the mouth or nose.
Potters develop a very specialized feel for their craft that shadows their personal  work. There is a top shelf... and getting to actually pick-up and explore this quality of work is a real treat.
Surface, skin, form, and balance...

Imagination and inspiration...

And a touch of the kiln gods...

Local Professor Trent Burkett makes "Potters Pots"... Magnificent!

These are a few "Pot"perotsii shots from show this week at the Reynolds Gallery here in Stockton California.
