Stephen Procter creates forms in clay and fire that draw as much inspiration from ancient Mediterranean and Asian pottery as from the Venus of Willendorf; the silhouettes and materials invoke millennia of utilitarian vessel-making while their scale and generous volumes suggest the sensuousness of the human body. The worlds of functional object and sculptural statement co-exist in his work.


Sculptural Vessels

Stephen Procter elevates the clay vessel to sculptural statement.  Assured form, masterful technique, and monumental scale combine to produce objects of emotional and spiritual gravity.
