Active Ingredients

The methods and processes of a ceramics studio are very mysterious to me.

Even though I’ve visited more than a dozen, the experience can still leave me wondering what I just saw.

Grant Akiyama is classicly-trained in this art. His contemporary work defies description.

Our photo session at his studio in Tulsa left me with more questions than answers.

The active ingredients for his works were a bit of a riddle but still made for an interesting portrait background.
