MARK KNOTT

Reflection, history, confluence, life experience, water, continual movement repetitive patterns. These are dominant themes in my work. I work with porcelain & stoneware using the wheel with then alter to loosen. Softening the edges, corners, and curves accentuating the forms. My work is soda fired in a directional cross draft kiln . The burners enter from one side. A sodium solution is sprayed into the kiln. This mixture vaporizes following the path of the flames, caressing one side of the pots. The side facing the burners accumulates more soda. The hypnotic patterns are softened and/or blurred. While the backside remains dry, decoration in tact and crisp. This directional firing creates fantastic surfaces with dramatic variations from side to side. It’s my hope as a potter that my work will first create some sort of happiness and/or joyfulness to the viewer, experiencing one small moment of happiness when used or viewed daily. I think the pots do that! That’s personal happiness!
