I first became aware of Eric Rempe's work when he was accepted into the KC Clay Guild Teabowl National a few years back. KCCG was so impressed with his work that we gave him a purchase award. Now he is in our collection of TBN pieces.
Eric is know for his thrown and altered functional pieces. He begins by throwing a piece to basic size and form, then alters it from the inside and outside by pushing and some paddling. After glaze firing he sometimes masks off lines with electrical tape or sandblast resist and sandblasts the piece. The effect is subtle and extraordinary.
