DAVID VOORHEES | Clay

A never-ending joy of working in clay has led me through various approaches to clay since 1975. From an early time I was infatuated with porcelain, its responsiveness to color and the demands required to work it well – mostly patience. I am learning that the fire asks for different pots and enlivens the clay in different ways.

This skilled potter established his studio in Zirconia, North Carolina, and comes from a family of accomplished artists. Both parents were professional painters and he carries on that heritage with under-glazed painted porcelain pieces, fired in a car kiln he designed and built himself. He enjoys making both stoneware and porcelain functional pieces that can be used every day.
