Phil Fishwick

Featured Artist: August 30 - October 31, 2021
Art has been a part of who Phil Fishwick is from his earliest memories. Phil can't remember not creating. From crayons, finger paints and the flour and salt "clay" his mother made to the porcelain clays he currently uses, Phil's life has always been about making things.

Ceramics became Ph...il's primary medium when he was short one 3D class for graduation and found himself in the pottery studio for his last art class. Phil was smitten and has been under the spell of this medium ever since.

After teaching ceramic arts at Rogue Community College, Phil retired back to McMinnville and set up a small studio. His current work is all in porcelain which he impresses with wood and ceramic stamps that he makes. The forms are all vessel-based and the themes represent some aspects of the human condition. Phil thinks of the series as "In the Garden of Love, Lust and Loss".

"Clay . . . 'tis a cruel mistress, but she makes me happy, so I wouldn't have it any other way." - Phil Fishwick

Basket/Vase (OL_20_10) Fine Art by artist Phil Fishwick - Description: These pieces are all glazed with Shino glazes. This is a glaze developed in Japan and taken in new directions by western potters. It is a glaze that must be fired in a reduction atmosphere (oxygen is cut back during the firing forcing the fire to look for it elsewhere to complete combustion - it finds it in iron - Fe2O3). Shinos love iron and they develop beautiful golds, reds oranges and browns when they find it. The two Slab Wall Plates (OL-20-04 and 05) exploit this affection for iron; I have painted an iron rich slip (liquid clay) in the center of each, covered this with sodium silicate which forms a glass like coating when it dries, and then stretched the clay so it cracks like mud in a wadi during the dry season.

Rabbit Jar (OL-20-01) and Covered Jar (OL-20-03 & 06) have incised patterns cut into the clay which are accentuated by the shino glaze. The darker areas on 03 & 06 are dustings of wood ash applied to the glaze.

Covered Jar (OL-20-02) and Basket Vase (OL- 20-10) have a different shino glaze. Although still getting their coloring mostly from iron, these pieces have a more lustrous finish. Both of these forms have been manipulated; while still relatively soft the clay has been pushed in and out creating bulging and recessed linear motifs which are then accented by stamped and impressed designs. Basket Vase (OL-20-10) is one of my favorite forms, and I have found myself returning to it over and over during the years. This one is more vertical than most and I plan to play with this aspect of the form more in the future.
