Wilson is always looking for new opportunities and avenues to showcase and sell work.
My experience with clay has been a sheer source of inspiration. The mobility of the material is amazing. Clay can easily take on the appearance of another material and appear man-made, synthetic or natural. In my work I strive to showcase the versatility.
As a viewer, I hope you discover a familiar feeling though the style of my work. My intent is to alter the viewer's perspective of the traditional format of functional ceramics. My desire is to uncover a new translation of clay that can be discovered and showcased.
