Gentry1ccErnest Gentry creates ceramic vessels influenced by numerous historic and contemporary elements, such as Nigerian currency, Chinese bell coins, Corinthian armor, and Victorian motifs. Gentry extracts formal aspects of these objects as inspiration for the synthesis of his receptacles. Each piece is designed and then hand thrown on a potter’s wheel with high-contrast glazes to offset pieces from one another. The effect creates both aesthetically appealing and high-functioning bowls, jars, and cups. Website>
