the work
The American ceramist Mitch Iburg begins his creative process by connecting with his surroundings and investigating in depth the resources that will be the base for his creations. According to the artists: "I seek to create work which combines the physiological substance and emotional characteristics
of place to form an expression of its terroir."
Each piece is unique, from the clay to the firing method, and everything about his work arises in response to the single resources found exclusively in each setting.

Born 1989
