Description:


My current ceramic work continues to show the influence of the Northern California Indian baskets and the time I spent working and teaching on the Hoopa Indian Reservation for the past twenty five years. Almost every culture has passed through a period of technological change from making woven baskets to pottery. The work that I am doing now explores that transition. Using contemporary interpretations of traditional basket shapes and designs, I am searching for a balance between woven materials and clay that is both natural and pleasing. Each of these mediums has a unique beauty that can hopefully be blended into something totally new and unexpected.
All of my pieces are thrown on a potters wheel and hand carved, with wood, leather and cord added after they are fired. The pottery with hand woven basket work is a collaboration between my wife, Peggy Kondo, and myself.
