David Voll ~ Artist Statement
New Jersey's famous stoneware clays found me when I was a teenager. I saw a vein of ochre colored clay exposed along the bank of a shallow cedar creek. This innocent discovery started my pottery exploration and has challenged me ever since. I was drawn to functional pottery for it's rich history and intimate collaboration in daily use. I love it's opaque beauty.
