by Brian Giniewski

Brian Giniewski's Drippy Pots were born out of a series of heavily textured and saturated vases from 2009 that the artist finished by pouring acrylic paint, medium and aggregate on the surface, building up layers of really intense color. Each piece takes about four weeks to finish as Giniewski tries to exploit the fluid nature of glaze as it melts in the kiln. The entire concept is about that moment where the juicy, gooey drip transitions to the rough, gritty ceramic surface, creating unique pieces. Giniewski didn't have a lot of exposure to art as a child. However, after he discovered that he loved ceramics in class, his passion for the art form grew. After high school, Giniewski chose to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics at Millersville University in Lancaster, PA. Later, he went on to study at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI and received a Masters of Fine Arts in 2009.
