Sumptuous Ceramics dripped with color and hand-built texture -- combined with provocative Textiles!

From Marcus Rothering:

I use hand-building techniques because the marks left during the process leave evidence of my physical interactions with clay.


When I work with clay I connect with my emotions and desires by having an interactive conversation with the clay. While I slowly build up clay coils from the bottom, my marks remain recording these secret exchanges of my feelings.


Due to working on a larger scale the most satisfying part of coil-building is that it allows me to observe progressive growth through the process.


While recently reawakening my love for fiber art with my tufting gun, I have incorporated common hand construction textile processes with clay.
