Philadelphia based ceramicist Lawrence Spitz uses innovative methods to create extremely thin-walled vessels that are exceptionally sturdy in spite of their delicate nature. Each bowl is a one-of-a-kind creation utilizing a splatter technique to apply layers of colored porcelain.

Lawrence Spitz first studied ceramics in 1965 with Toshiko Takaezu whilst she was the Artist in Residence at Princeton University. Recently his interest has been in pushing ceramics to its limits of size and translucence. He is drawn to the purity and strength of porcelain as is embodied in this current piece. For him, the creative process is a balance between the thinness and lightness of the work and the destructive forces of gravity and centrifugal force which threaten to tear it apart and reduce it to a formless mound of clay.
