Becca Floyd

Becca Floyd creates limited production, high decorated and altered functional work. Her primary focus is on glaze treatment, which is based in traditional Japanese glaze types such as shinos, oribes, celadons and iron-based tenmoku’s. Using wax, she paints plant and animal motifs between layers of glaze. This juxtaposition of organic designs and volatile glazes fired in a reduction kiln makes a fascinating surface which reveals itself over time to the user.

Becca Floyd Artist Statement

My work begins with solid functional forms, progresses to wet altering, and ends with layered patterns that reveal themselves over time in a relationship with the user. Being drawn to contemporary and traditional Asian clay, and living in western North Carolina, allows me to see how other potters are inspired by similar archetypes of functional ceramics. I'm interested in the interplay between form and surface, and in the cycles of making and decorating and firing; it's a difficult and rewarding lifestyle.
