Description

Peter Pincus’ elegant vessels are a means of exploring his belief that color interaction can elicit new ways of seeing. His practice is grounded in a historical understanding of ceramics as a traditional craft that explores relationships between the human body, space, and time. Often described as “paintings out of pots,” this urn demonstrates Pincus’ trademark investigation of prismatic color. Pincus’ porcelain begins as thrown stoneware, which he then casts in plaster. This plaster mold is taken apart, manipulated, and reassembled. Layers of colored porcelain are poured into the mold, allowed to set, and cut into strips. Finally, the gray porcelain is poured in to fill the mold. The cast piece is then polished and fired. Pincus’ process is integral to the final product, and he highlights this process by displaying seams and boundaries.
