More About Design/Refine by David Eichelberger
His artwork exhibits a refined sense of design, with crisp forms executed thoughtfully and flawlessly. The surface of his work is enhanced with quiet markings embodying a determined precision. Subtle variations in color and texture resulting from atmospheric firing add another dimension. The result is a fresh, futuristic feel that involves the viewer in quiet appreciation today, and a level of depth which hints at the stream of delightful surprises that will come with tomorrow's contemplation.
Relatively early in his career, David has established a polished voice and extraordinary style. He is an exceptional designer who already stands out in the next generation of ceramic artists. MudFire is thrilled to present to Atlanta an in-depth look at his latest thinking with this large collection of new work.
