Hand portraits show a potter’s contorted gestures

Potter Eric Landon is one of the co-founders of the Danish ceramics studio Tortus Copenhagen. Having previously shared insights into the ceramics practice, you may have seen the viral video that the artist created by mounting a camera onto the potters wheel to get a new perspective on throwing a pot.

In a new project, a series of hand portraits use photography to demonstrate the contorted gestures that go into the creation of a piece of hand-thrown ceramics. When working in wet clay, these micro-gestures are what give the clay shape and form.
