Meet Francis “Fran” Palkovic, an artist based in Moses Lake, Washington. Fran shares how nature influences art and how it led him to become an artist.
Fran walks us through a man-made labyrinth based on the Chartres Cathedral in France and explains the meaning behind it.
Fran explains his pathway to changing his medium of choice to clay while he was an undergraduate student leading him to his career in ceramics and pottery.
Fran shows us examples of his work including several hand-built pieces that focus on sculpture and slab construction.
Fran talks about failure and how changing how you look at it can create something new. He also discusses how growing up around industrial things has influenced his work.
Fran talks about how fish and other biological inspirations have been incorporated into his pottery and glaze work.
Fran shows us more of his art and walks us through the process for creating pattern compositions made with pen and paper.
Fran demonstrates throwing a bowl on the pottery wheel for young children (and above!).
