cyrusthepotter on Etsy

When I first opened my shop on Etsy, I was very excited to check out the other artists who were selling there. What a different atmosphere than Ebay! One shop I came upon, that is still a favorite, is called cyrusthepotter.

In his shop profile, Cyrus tells us this is his fifth year as a professional artist. After graduating with a degree in fine arts, he established a studio in Pine River, Minnesota.

"Along with creating a wide range of functional ceramic work I have explored other application of the medium including architectural installation through a percent for arts grant from the Northwest Technical college in Bemidji. I was also invited to do a solo show at the North Dakota Museum Of Art in Grand Forks North Dakota where I combined traditional pottery forms with found objects to create still life installations, and parings of complimentary materials, mainly discarded rusted metal pieces and pottery forms.

Currently I am experimenting with interior applications, including sinks, tiles, and making bricks along with producing a range of functional shapes from bowls to bottles and more elaborate decorative compositions of forms."













These bottle trios have to be my favorites. There's something about a round bottle fitting snugly right up against another, that makes me estatic. Why can't people get along, like these bottles? There are both traditional and non-traditional items in Cyrus' shop - you need to link on over, and if you're like me, he will soon become a favorite of yours, too.
