“Whatever worked in the past, build on it; whatever didn't work in the past, break the chain that binds you to it.”
I make my home and my art in Brooklyn, NY, an absolutely inspiring place to be.
I make functional pottery using tinted stoneware slips. The results reference 17th century Staffordshire slipware, Turkish Ebru patterns, Venetian marbled papers, and French agateware. But I've tinkered with the palette to create something new.
Firing each piece with a buttery satin glaze, I permanently preserve both my artistic gesture and the slip’s fleeting fluidity. I love the contrast of the colors’ sharp definition and the patterns’ psychedelic softness. Each piece is a unique record of a specific moment in time. No two pieces are alike, but they relate to each other through shared palettes, patterns, and line quality.
I hope you enjoy my work. Morgan Levine
