Moon Hand Pottery
By Tyler-James Anderson
Tyler-James Anderson creates functional stoneware and porcelain ceramics that deviate from the standard fare. He is heavily inspired by nature, science, and the art and mythos of other cultures. In his wheel thrown and slip cast ceramics, he implements a wide prismatic color palette as well as slip trailing and heavy alterations to bring his forms to life. Working under the moniker Moon Hand Pottery in Asheville North Carolina, his goal is to challenge the norm with functional vibrant pieces meant not only for decoration, but as conversation pieces for everyday use. Crafted with care, these pieces go through a lengthy production process turning mounds of earth into the beautiful functional pieces they are today.
