Tyler Speicher @ Greenwich House Pottery's Made In Clay
I brought these cups home with me from the annual GHP benefit sale. Their maker lives in Iowa. What attracted me to them instantly was the very blocky shapes that really reminded me of grain elevators and other architectural forms of the wide open spaces. They are fired electrically to cone 6, and the glazes are commercially prepared - both facts I found surprising. He also had some neat small plates and canister-type vessels that I was pining for. Great work.
