About Danny:

 Danny Meisinger is known for wheel-thrown and altered white stoneware or porcelain functional wares and large non-functional sculptural vessel forms.  Some of these non-functional pitchers and bowls are 4 feet tall or wide.

Meisinger finishes his works by dipping them in a glaze, often with an added overspray glaze application. The surfaces often present the contrast between smooth highly polished and textured areas. Meisinger’s favorite pieces are inspired by the work of the ancient Greek ceramists. You can find more information about Danny and his work on his website : www.spinningearthpottery.net

Artist statement
"When I reflect on my many years of work as a studio potter, I realize it has changed dramatically. The way I think about my work has also changed. My work as a potter, though extremely enjoyable is not the totality of who I am. I do not sacrifice everything to its advancement and I never want to become so consumed by it that I cannot hold it in a healthy context. I am first an individual striving to be more deeply human. If someone asks me what I do for a living I reply I am a potter, but I am much more than that. My family is the most important thing to me, and making pottery is a very satisfying way to provide for them. My work as an artist is also very important to me. What I mean by that is art is important in the world. Even more important than art are artists. We think differently. Creativity is spirit filled and the more art there is in the world the more artists there will be, and the more spirit-filled the world becomes."
