Long Beach, California-based potter Tony Marsh carefully creates and then deconstructs his ceramic vessels. Whether perforated or covered with protrusions, they are seldom without structural ornament. Early in his career, Marsh apprenticed in Mashiko, Japan with Tatsuzo Shimaoka, a potter known for his revival of ancient ceramic practices. Marsh’s training left him with an appreciation for formal technique and craft tradition, which he translates into his own creations that often resemble cellular structures, organisms, or other biomorphic forms.
