Ian Carty Ceramics

My influences have always been with Ancient Roman and Native American ceramics.
The artists made pottery to serve honour and worship by using techniques that have somehow long been forgotten. My aim is to recreate their work in a modern way.

Master potters from thousands of years ago never retained written records of how they made ceramics. The process was passed on as skills to their apprentices.

For thousands of years people were unable to ascertain just how they made their masterpieces. However, in the last few years “modern ceramicists” have spent long hours exploring the work and after many endeavours of both trial and error the process has been revealed to those who search for the answer in the clay.
