With formal training and a bachelor’s degree from Columbus Collage of Art & Design, Ansel Beck Pottery has a standard of excellence. His aim is to create one of a kind functional art with a recognizable style. He does this by using subtle glaze effect combinations of brush work, pouring, or spraying. This allows the glaze to play on the surface texture of the clay through the magic of the firing. There is a conscious process of creating textures for the hand and the eye to appreciate.
Creating ceramics inspired by English, Japanese, and American pottery, Ansel's goal is to create work that is both tactile and aesthetic, and meant to enhance your daily life. Living in the Great Northwest, Ansel is inspired by the colors of the sunsets, the ocean and the redwood forest, which are rich in warm and cool tones. As functional art, Ansel's work is lead free, food safe, oven safe, dishwasher and microwave safe.
