“The artists from whose work I draw the most inspiration all had common themes: playfulness and experimentation.”
"I first ‘slung mud’ around the age of six, and I loved the feel of it,” says David Changar. To those of us not fluent in pottery, he’s referring to getting his hands in some clay. (He also loved that clay gave him an excuse to come home dirty.) Since first experimenting with “mud” as a kid, David’s tried many techniques and styles.
“If I had my choice I would never make anything twice,” he explains. “I love new challenges and exploring new processes.” While the potter’s wheel is one of his go-to tools, he’s careful not to let the wheel limit his creative energy. He plays with new techniques in any approach that can be used, even ones that were not created for use with ceramics.
Although David does reproduce many of his popular designs, each piece is a little different, because it's handmade and unique. When not crafting for sale, he continues to experiment and iterate in his studio in the Bronx.
