PETER PINCUS’S Finesse by Lyn Horton, January 2019.

‘Pincus is an intense, dedicated master of his craft. His work speaks a restrained yet exuberant enthusiasm for those visual artists and ceramicists who have come before him. This article hinges upon an exhibit, at Ferrin Contemporary in North Adams, MA, entitled “Peter Pincus: Channeling Josiah Wedgwood.”…’

PETER PINCUS: Channeling Josiah Wedgwood

November 10-December 29th, 2018

North Adams, MA

Artist Reception, November 10th 5-7pm.

“To better understand the work, I just had to make the work,” Pincus said. “I began with the Etruscan pot, his primary source for one of his objects; a calyx krater — a traditional wine-holding vessel. I looked very closely at Josiah’s reconsideration of that form, just trying to reproduce those objects; understanding what liberties I had and what things I had to stick to with the original source.”

Bill Rogers reports from St. Louis, Missouri, “New York artist Peter Pincus works in colored porcelain as a way to create “three dimensional paintings” out of pots. How can these visitors between the second and third dimensions enhance one another? How can the form of a vessel aid the painter and vice versa?”

Jacobson explores Peter Pincus’s elaborate process, his path to clay, and his motivationto create.
Peter’s work grabs your attention and makes you think, “How the hell did he do that?” But it just sits there and says, “You don’t have to know. Just look at me.” — ceramic sculptor Anne Currier

Jacobson expanded on Pincus’s detailed and painstaking process of creating vessels with a second article,  “Pincus’s 12 -Step Process.”
