Stephen Procter

Stephen Procter makes sculptural vessels from clay. He is interested in the figural presence that large vessels can emanate, the sensuous language of their curves, and the way they beckon the viewer to approach and touch them. Through his work, he explores the artistic mysteries of line, volume, and movement, wanting to express the timeless beauty of this ancient art form. Procter works on a traditional potter’s wheel, but his approach is essentially sculptural. Beginning with an envisaged idea of scale and assertiveness, the details of form and texture result from an improvisational response to the intention, materials, and process that unfolds over a period of days as he creates the unique piece. He builds his large vessels in many stages, joining damp sections in a modified version of the coil-and-throw method that originated in ancient cultures. Many of his vessels are unglazed, but are often coated with a thin layer of slip to achieve subtle and earthy hues.
