Lichen Urns by Randy O'Brien

Lichen Urns by Randy O’Brien for FUNERIA®

Randy O’Brien’s artwork is suffused with a vibrant palette and extraordinary texture that stems from his keen observance of the natural world and mastery of an art-making process that delights and mystifies all who see it. While many experienced potters are able to deliver consistent results from hand throwing earthenware clay on a spinning wheel, Randy quickly distinguishes himself in creating superbly balanced, seductively simple forms. He then applies layer upon layer of material, including volcanic ash, and low-fires his pots between each addition in a signature crawl glaze process.

His on-going explorations, and use of uncommon materials, result in artworks that pack the drama of the world around us in a single object. We see lichen on a rock, a dry lake bed, lava flow, mosses and mineral formations.
