Our featured artisan this week is Kissimmee River Pottery of Flemington. Artist John Fulwood has been making pottery for more than 40 years and says he is still fascinated by the ever-changing characteristics of clay. “Although I have specific ideas about function, I believe that you have to allow the clay to have some control, some freedom of movement within the form, if you want your pots to have life,” Fulwood said. “Each pot evolves gradually as I try to maintain a harmonious balance between the form and its function.”
