SID HENDERSON

POTTERY

Tucson, United States

Sid got his BA at the University of California, Davis, where he learned a great deal about glaze and clay chemistry.

 

After graduating he continued his practise with a few bronze sculpture commissions for cities in Texas and after moving to Tucson he began teaching ceramics for the city's Parks and Recreation Department.

His terracotta work follows the traditional method of Greek pottery and he's invented a special recipe for the clay, slowly ageing the mixture to improve the consistency and hardness.

 

The images rendered on his vessels are meant to be a light hearted documentation of the delightfully absurd things he's observed gay people doing in order to pass the time during the Covid pandemic, via the internet.
