Artist Spotlight: Part One Hundred and Six

Today, I've decided to introduce you to an artist you've never met here before, but his work is just mind-blowing.  Meet L.G. Barns of LG Potter in Missouri.



Originally of Augusta, Georgia, he's been potting since 1994, when he got his start at Augusta State University, receiving an award for Excellence in Ceramics in 1996.  He's a natural who spent several years honing his skills and it more than shows.


He ranges from the miniature to the oversized in his pieces, and he loves doing one of a kind work.


I have purchased two of his large bowls as gifts personally, one as a birthday present for my sister, the other a wedding gift for friends.  I also own a small one of his bowls myself, and it's gorgeous.   His workmanship is impeccable and highly recommend his pieces for anyone with an affinity for pottery.


His pieces are really functional too.  How cool is this fit-to-your-hand serving bowl?


Be sure to check out all his other items, and for more, follow his Facebook page.

So cool, I had recently featured him on the HAF Blog, but he didn't show up there, even though he was informed....sadly.
But do love his art...

Wow, I can't believe I missed this artist and he is a "home boy". Yep comes from my old stomping grounds. Thanks Larissa, I love his work and there are a couple pieces that I may just have to have.
