Business Name: Joel Pisowicz Pottery
Long Business Description:

Joel Pisowicz is studio potter from Northwest Indiana. He enjoyed hand made pottery as a child and began making pots, later, in high school as a hobby.  Joel went on to study at Indiana University in Bloomington and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with an emphasis in ceramics. After earning his degree, Joel moved to Porter, IN and built a ceramics studio where he now produces his work full time.

Artist statement:

I make functional pottery; therefore, my approach to ceramics is rooted in utility.  Elements of my work do stray from the basic definition of utilitarian. The pots I make are typically meant for use on a regular basis and I strive for my work to have a healthy balance between aesthetic and utility.

I am not making any huge claims through my pottery. I am focused on producing well-made and informed pots.  I intend my pottery to reach and be appreciated by a wide audience, while also appealing specifically to an informed audience.

My forms draw inspiration from objects, structures and pottery that I find stimulating.  Industrial forms, various types of architecture, hardware, contemporary ceramics and historical pottery inform my studio practice. My goal is not to let a single influence dominate my aesthetic, but to have a blend of elements that communicates a familiar yet elusive feeling.
