The Vessels Medansky displayed were thrown on a wheel. He then applied more clay to the outside to create the 3-D surface textures. "I usually start by throwing a cylinder and adding or subtracting forms from there," he says. "Most of my pieces are inspired by certain movements and references found in modern art and architecture, such as Le Corbusier’s Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, France. When glazing the objects, I like to use a satin white speckled glaze because it’s a color I see it fitting into domestic and exhibition spaces."
