Art @ Tilton: Ceramics by Griffin
December 30, 2021
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until December 30, 2021
Biography: Griffin Mariani is 14 years old and a 9th grader at Eaglebrook School. He lives in Montague, with his parents, brother Gavin, and Golden Retriever named Bozeman. Griffin enjoys taking art classes, travelling with his family, and is an avid hockey player.
Artist Statement: I’ve taken many art classes as electives at school, including 2D Art, stone carving and stained glass, but ceramics has really resonated with me. I like working in this medium because I get to be creative and make something I can both admire and use in everyday life. My teacher Jaye Pope has been my guide and inspiration.
I create pieces through hand building, coil techniques and throwing on the wheel. Each piece is hand glazed and fired in a kiln. I learn something new with every piece I create and continue to perfect my techniques. My favorite pieces combine hand thrown pots with pieces of stained glass on the bottom. The way the glass melts on the bottom always leaves a cool effect.
