Rick Hintze

Rick Hintze became serious about making pottery in the early 1970's after beginning his career in art history.  The plasticity of the material and the rhythmic process of forming pots on the wheel drew him in.  For Hintze, pottery seemed to be very much about movement, rhythm, and gesture. The fact that pots could also be used in daily life was a big bonus, providing a manner of meaningful communication within a domestic setting. Hintze was taken with the idea that straightforward pots made simply and quickly could speak in an authentic and extraordinary way. While this approach to making pottery is still valid and meaningful to him, he has recently been developing applied patterns with wax resist and layered glazes. A recent trip to China has also piqued his interest in porcelain and celadon glaze
