Gillan Doty

Gillan Doty creates work that evokes functionality and simplicity. Using soda- and wood-fired kilns, he steps toward tradition in process even when the form diverges into contemporary exploration. His work displays the energy of active finger swipes, the chased after kiss of atmosphere, investigative asymmetry, and handles of comfort. The work embodies a marriage of methods while seeking a place on a well-worn path.
