Thomas Orr - Ceramics

Tom Orrs unique clay is rich in form, color and surface that seemingly age with deft skill. Orr graduated with a Master of Fine Art from Claremont Graduate School in Claremont, California.

"My new impetus is formal issues of color and space. Issues of pattern and decoration are important to ceramic pots and sculpture, but usually stood second to form. With the implementation of decorated ceramic boxes, my work delved into the formal issue of color. No longer was form the imposing catalyst; color ruled! I continue in this vein in exploring the sculptural cups, albeit the shapes of the cups remain more individual in nature than the cubical box 'canvases.' " -- Thomas Orr
