Wes Weiss; I am a Central New York resident, currently working out of the studio at Clayscapes Pottery in Syracuse.

My initial exposure to ceramics was at State University College at Oswego in the early 70’s, and later in the 80’s at Syracuse University. I am now taking classes with Tim See.

I hand build using slab construction methods, and enjoy creating curved pieces from leather-hard clay to create architectural and organic forms.  One interest is using heavy doses of colorants wedged into different clay bodies. I have fired in pit, raku, cone 6 oxidation, cone 9 reduction, and wood fire.   I get great results in the wood fire by marbling clay with 2% iron oxide.  I am currently working on carved tree forms and  large organic shapes.
