Boston-based ceramic artist, Jeremy Ogusky, had a productive winter. Not only did he escape the dreary cold, but he also crafted a new line of wood-fired ceramic pieces inspired by the New Mexico desert. Catch up with Jeremy below.
What happens when you send one restless Boston potter high into the New Mexico desert for a month to create pottery? This past January, Jeremy Ogusky took a month-long sabbatical to visit his brother in Taos, New Mexico. During this time, he created a specific body of work to fire at over 2300 degrees in a sprung-arch wood kiln located high up in the New Mexico desert. The purpose of his sabbatical was to create a new type of work, become inspired again with the material of clay, and to refresh his entrepreneurial energy – mission accomplished!
