Austin Riddle

The impulse to make has had a perpetual presence in my life. In my youth, I made objects that taught me the importance of craftsmanship and a feeling of pride in my work. This work ethic and need to create heavily influences the way I exist and interact with my environment. My work is primarily wheel-thrown, with an emphasis on function, and fired in a soda kiln. The forms and color palette are a response to my infatuation with mid-century America, its aesthetic, and its associations with being a “simpler life”. The simplicity of form references these perceived views of a “simpler life” in an effort to inform and clarify the complexity of the present and future.
