Ben Carter

Through use, functional art objects give people a new level of attention and appreciation for daily life. By investing the time to decorate my earthenware pottery with historically high-class patterns, I treat the material as if it is a precious commodity. This transformation encourages the user to value and celebrate everyday experiences. I see adornment as synonymous with the expression of emotional fullness and gratification.
