Peter Voulkos

Bull in a China Shop


Peter Voulkos 1924–2002, American artist from Greek Decent. He was consider an abstract expressionist due to his surreal and spontaneous relationship in creating ceramic plates. Voulkos’s hefty clay sculptures smashed the boundaries and constraints of utilitarian ceramics with three categories of work: “ice buckets,” “plates,” and “stacks.” His work relates to my dinner set that I am making out of clay. The imperfections makes his pieces and mine perfect.
