Full Explanation

Anthony Biancoviso specializes in creating distinctive sculptural and functional works of ceramic art that are sensual in form and highly tactile.

Each pot is one-of-a-kind and made on the potter’s wheel.The surface treatment of his pottery is similar to that found in the unglazed, traditional burnished Southwestern Native American pottery and accentuates the distinctive and natural qualities of earthenware clay.  Each piece is placed in a small wood-burning kiln and fired to a low temperature.  

His recent body of work, "closed forms", grows out of the artist’s intention to explore the interplay between form, volume, surface textures, light and shadows. The sculpture is inspired by both nature’s stones and rock formations, plus the human form. These pieces are wheel-thrown, and then altered by hand.

Anthony's studio is located exactly one mile from the scenic Delaware River. Visitors are invited to touch and handle all pots for sale and to learn more about this ancient process.  His pots are offered at a wide range of prices. They make unique and decorative art gifts.
