Jim and Shirl Parmentier - Mars Hill NC
Our style, or our mission with our vessels is first with its form. Form and proportion must fit the flow of the vessel. It must start at the base or the foot and continue through the body of the vessel and up through the neck or the top. Almost all our forms have some type of flowing handle. Depending on shape it may fit tight to the body or flow high and loose from the vessel. With form intact, the vessel has surface alterations to conform to the shape. The ash glaze will flow into these carvings and crevasses. With this continuity of form, alteration, carving and fluid glazes the vessel is complete.
