Roy Hanscom is the Ceramic Professor at Lone Star College-North Harris in Houston, TX. Mr. Hanscom exhibits his work both nationally and regionally in juried and invitational exhibitions. He received his MFA in 1980 from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio. His latest body of work is the exploration of the functional form. The forms are thrown and altered, giving each piece a sense of life and movement. Constructed of a high fire stoneware clay body, the forms are reduction fired to cone 9 in a gas kiln. A combination of ash glazes are used to help accentuate the forms and further enhance movement.
