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?
