From the gallery at Santa Fe Clay to your kitchen cabinets! These three functional potters make work that is visually appealing and invites use. Each artist works with porcelain, the stongest and whitest of clays. They achieve their unique styles through exquisite forms and surface treatments that reference fabric, history and pure imagination.

Adam Field, of Colorado, meticulously carves the surfaces of his work. He has traveled the world collecting a vast knowledge of pattern language. The carvings incorporate historical influences from baskets and fabrics, and also mimic natural motifs. Clean and sophisticated, no detail is over looked; even the small foot on every mug is rich with carved detail.

Ben Krupka, from Massachusetts, brings a soft approach to traditionally crisp porcelain. His pieces are painted and carved, incorporating designs that invoke narrative. Clouds float across the surfaces of his pots, creating fields of color, and doodle-like sketches cut through the color with nostalgic images.

Lorna Meaden, also from Colorado, throws, stretches, alters and reassembles her functional wares. She scribes tiny black lines on the surfaces creating patterns that follow the flowing forms. Surface inspiration comes from medieval costumes and  everyday repeats, such as the bricks on her kiln.
