David Kenton Kring Ceramics

David ​makes​ ​pottery​ ​that​ ​the​ ​viewer​ ​can​ ​connect​ ​with​ ​and​ ​hopefully​ ​open​ ​up​ ​a dialogue​ ​between​ ​two​ ​people.​ ​His​ ​exploration​ ​of​ ​surfaces,​ ​forms,​ ​and​ ​imagery​ ​helps​ ​to​ ​spark conversation.​​ ​By​ ​adding​ ​various​ ​image​ ​transfer​ ​techniques​ ​he​ ​allows​ ​the​ ​viewer​ ​to​ ​connect​ ​with a​ ​shape,​ ​a​ ​graphic,​ ​or​ ​pop​ ​culture​ ​icon, which​ ​furthers​ ​the​ ​exploration​ ​of​ ​conversation.​ ​​ ​When drawing​ ​from​ ​the​ ​past​, he​ ​uses​ ​references​ ​of​ ​old​ ​enamel​ ​cookware,​ ​classic​ ​magazine​ ​ads, and​ ​mid​ ​century​ ​and​ ​pop​ ​art​ ​of​ ​the​ ​50s​ ​and​ ​60s.
