TONY WINCHESTER
untitled red pot, stoneware

Tony received his BFA in sculpture and ceramics from Bellevue College, a small school in Nebraska. His love of sculptural form finds its match in, as he puts it, "the emotional and gestural qualities of clay." The flowing qualities of ash glazes over matte glazes create a richness of surface which enhance the movement and mood of his work. In these wheel-thrown and altered stoneware pieces, colors create small landscapes, all different.

Winchester is a resident of Persia, Iowa. He has worked as an independent studio potter since 1993 and has received national recognition. Winchester's work is lead free, oven and microwave safe.
