An Interview with Leland

Q: Favorite clay?
A: A bag of Shigaraki clay given to me while in Tokyo. Also, a bag of micaceous clay given to me by Felipe Ortega.

Q: What inspires your work?
A: Inspiration for me comes from the larger idea that pots are functional. I also really like the surfaces that wood firing gives pots.

Q: How would you describe your work to potential buyers?
A: My work seems recognizable and familiar at first but if one looks more closely they can see details that are subtle and quiet.
