JVP Wares by Jonathan Van Patten
Jonathan Van Patten is a ceramicist whose pieces embody ambiguity, exploration, and discovery of a true self. Hard lines maze their way around the curves of thrown forms, where start and end cease to exist.
Jonathan splits time between Portland, Oregon and Brooklyn, New York, practicing art, drumming, painting, and writing. He shares with us in an interview.
Jonathan's technique of tape masking starts with a basic roll of tape, a ruler, and a razor. Using simple instruments, he creates finishes with varying texture, contoured to the form of the pieces he throws.
The tape mask is applied and removed precisely by hand, in intentional - and simultaneously instinctive - motions.
Both geometric and fluid, Jonathan's personal exploration finds expression within his work.
