Landscaping with Water Features and Stone Walls
Connecticut Growers, spring annuals and bulbs.
This eclectic collection of wares by Tim Skull at Clay Works in Canton, CT are made of stoneware and porcelain fired in a myriad of kilns ranging from Raku to Wood Fired. The majority of the wheel thrown pieces concentrate on forms emerging from the “Domi Form” (female goddess form).
Currently the artist is exploring the freedom of hand building. His pots are all one of a kind with unique idiosyncrasies and signatures created from the flames, atmosphere and vapor found in my numerous combustion kilns.
