I first saw John Oles work at the 2010 KC Clay Guild Teabowl National. WOW! I was very impressed with the flow and movement of the form and the simplicity of the creamy white surfaces. The surface makes me think these posts are alive, undulating or melting.
John has lived in the New Orleans area for some time...going to grad school and teaching at local colleges and universities.
I appreciate the cracked surfaces and bulbous, holey handles on the work from around 2014. The more surface interest the better!
