Barry Gregg

Barry Gregg's inspiration comes from his three-legged wonder-dog Parker. She runs, jumps, swims and dances. Most of all, she inspires. No pity here. Only inspiration. She takes life one day at a time and accepts life as it comes at her. She is a loyal friend, my muse and teaches life lessons daily. Growl only when growled at, let unimportant (and some important) things go, remain loyal, bark less and wag more

Barry Gregg Artist Statement

Through the journey of life, my passion has been drawn to various art forms. With formal training as a painter and illustrator, I have carried those skills to a 20-year career as a graphic designer. It fulfilled a need to use my knowledge and artistic expression to design works with a strict set of rules, yet still expressing myself in a two dimensional format. It is in the mid-nineties that I discovered clay.

My first experience as a handbuilder in a 3-dimensional art form gave me a satisfaction of self expression that began as a slow process that eventually built into a need to create. The configuration of the medium created limitless possibilities. Although there were rules and restrictions, I would push them to the limits, eventually creating my own voice.

My discovery of the potters wheel expanded my creative toolbox. I strive to combine my various skills to create forms that speak to me and eventually to the viewer. I utilize not only my artistic knowledge in my work, but also to use the experiences I have gathered as a child into adulthood. Including, but not limited to, fantasy, spirituality, a magical childhood at the beach and the unknown.

It is my goal to let go of preconceived notions of what the finished product should be. Therefore, allowing myself to experience the surprises that the clay has to offer from its conceptual beginnings to the final form.
