Artist Justin Teilhet has come a long way since starting out as a self-taught  ceramicist. His works are at once simple and yet incredibly dynamic while maintaining a soothing effect on the eye. They are special because they function as both art in and of themselves, as well as functional pieces that can be used as a vessel or a vase.

Justin explains:

My current body of work is about surface tension; therefore, I use a family of glazes with continuous properties. The work is porcelain, made on a wheel. My driving force is visual simplicity, which attempts to create a sense of tranquility. The pieces are created and displayed in compositions of two or more objects. The interplay and negative space is as important as the objects themselves.
