This Artist Carves Pottery And Reveals Unexpected Layers Of Colors Underneath

Even though pottery, one of the oldest human inventions, has been around for thousands of years, there still are artisans who never cease to amaze us with their creations. One of those people is Washington-based artist, Sean Forest Roberts. He effectively uses his background in chemistry and four years in science labs to experiment and develop intricate porcelain forms and patterns. One of his best-known practices is carving multi-layered ceramics to create intricate and colorful designs. Clearly, it’s not just Robert’s hobby. He is a full-time ceramicist who runs his own ceramic business called Forest Ceramic Company. When not creating ceramics, he is teaching workshops and attending craft shows.

On his Instagram account which has 359k fans, Roberts often demonstrates not only the finished products but also the whole ceramic-making process. Through the captivating videos, the artist demonstrates the surprisingly satisfying process of carving pottery. The carvings reveal a mixture of different colors and vary in shapes and sizes. “I am deeply fascinated by the underlying randomness in the patterns and structures of nature and I attempt to replicate some of those effects in my work,” he says. Scroll below for some of his best works and don’t forget to visit his Instagram page to see his pottery-making in action!
