A dynamic mother and son artistic collaboration in contemporary porcelain.
Everett Studio works with clay because it is an art medium that is truly limitless. Clay is
both flexible and strong, capable of both abstract and lyric expression, it can be both
functional and decorative. Working with porcelain, the possibilities are endless.
Throwing on the wheel, one feels the dynamic interaction between the artist, and the
medium- clay- that is truly centering. One feels the push and the pull of the clay, its
resistance and pliability. As we submerge this collaboration into the creative process,
we delight in the conversations and results.
Working each day in the studio together, mother and son, is a wonder-filled experience
as two generations sharing knowledge, techniques and conceptual aesthetics.
The contemporary porcelain that we produce is an expression of confident wet brush
strokes on wet clay pieces. The bold colors of these three-dimensional paintings speak
to a modern sense of theory and composition.
We love the process of clay, and with it, the endless ability to entertain new ideas.
Whatever is being created, it is usually metaphoric; it is all a part of a much larger
spiritual journey of discovery and purpose. We honor the experience and history.
