Tim Ludwig's beautiful pots
Tim Ludwig is a potter and educator from Deland Florida. I know of Tim through the students he taught at Volusa County High school. Their ceramics program always sent fantastic students to the Univ. of Florida. You can find more about Tim and his work in this months PMI. He has the cover article- Spontaneity and Control. The intro to the article states "Tim Ludwig uses an earthenware clay to make forms influenced by Peter Voulkos’s abstract expressionism, then he decorates them in the botanical illustrative style of the 18th century."
I'm a big fan of the way he frames his decoration with form. He creates two dimensional boundaries and then decorates just outside of their edges. The scale relationship gives the feeling that his flowers are going to jump off the pot. It is a really nice way to enliven scientific drawings that sometimes seem stiff when they are in books.
