Chris Gustin is an American ceramicist, who strives to produce art that challenges the audience to take a second look, questioning if their first perception was the correct one. “What excites me is how a pot can exist on a variety of levels, slowly revealing itself,” Gustin has said. Gustin creates voluptuous objects that address the human figure through the artist’s hand. Whether in the form of functional or sculptural, Gustin’s works explore the vast potential of abstract forms in clay while focussing on the tensions between volume and surface, pigment and natural clay—finished with a layer of glaze. “I want my work to provoke image to the viewer, to suggest something that is just on the other side of consciousness,” Gustin has said. “I don’t want my pots to conjure up a singular recollection, but ones that change with each glance, with each change of light.”
