Experiments in Texture / by Allen Ball

This burnished and pit fired pinch pot egg is the start of new explorations in texture and visual density in both painting and ceramics. I am especially looking to produce paintings which have a tactile and visually rich surface that includes elements of abstaction in a representative body of work. 

 This pinch pot egg was made using 5th century Mesoamerican pottery techniques.
