Karl Borgeson

Although I hand build some pieces, most are wheel thrown and some are altered to create squared, oval or triangular forms. To satisfy my minimalist instincts I restrict my color palette using just two slips and four glazes. I use two clays (stoneware and porcelain) which results in slightly different color responses. Surface embellishment, when employed, incorporates basket weave imagery, checkerboard patterns or parallel lines. Subtle surface variations, color and texture are achieved by the addition of wood ash to the surface of the pots before loading and the introduction of a small amount of salt at the end of the firing.
