For Adam Gruetzmacher, everything begins on the potter’s wheel. He is interested in exploring the intersection of historical hand-making traditions and the aesthetic of utility. Handles are “pulled” by hand, or are wire-cut from a wedge-shaped slab of clay and the patterns you see on his work are applied using masking tape. He takes pride in making every-day objects that work well and are crafted with care and consideration.
Adam Gruetzmacher lives and works in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
