Handthrown Porcelain Bowl 'Celedon Dream'
Russel works with porcelain for its purity and translucence. It allows one to look into and through the pot, not merely at it. The piece becomes metaphorical, rich with potential, and becomes an instrument for transformation. Through his work, he attempts to resolve function and beauty into a presence - beauty suspends the soul in timelessness, and it is here the soul expands to sense more than itself.
