Ethan strives to create original, dynamic works that test the boundaries of how pottery should look. The pieces are handmade from clay thrown on the potter's wheel, carved with a fine blade, and fired. Each piece is then glazed with an airbrush to ensure a smooth, even finish before firing for a second time. His work is inspired by organic forms, revered architecture, modern minimalist design, and many other examples of striking beauty. Each of these is the purest expression of impeccable form that upholds perfect function: the soaring buttressing of Medieval cathedrals, the repetitive yet chaotic poetry of a coral reef, the smooth, bold lines of modern art.
