About Tamara Danoyan

While working on my MFA degree in Photography at San Jose State University, I became interested in ceramics in general and pottery in particular. I have continued my explorations in clay after graduating in May, 2015 and found that handbuilding holds a world of possibilities when it comes to shapes, textures, and treatment of edges. Once I discovered pinching, it allowed for an even more intimate exchange with the material. I believe in a dialog with clay, in listening for what it would like to express on any given day. All of my pieces are unique for a simple reason that no two conversations are ever the same. My pieces range from functional to fine art, with quite a few residing in between. Many are inspired by nature and the wabi sabi principle of Japanese aesthetics.
