Featured 2018 Trunk Show Exhibitor & New Resident Artist…
Nathanael Wheaton is a Nevada City ceramic artist. We are thrilled to announce his recent move to join ASiF as a resident artist!
His works are designed to be contemplated by those who love wrapping their hands around something interesting in shape, form and texture. His pieces are not simply functional - but arresting. They bring more questions than answers - with textures reminiscent of the backs of ancient sea creatures or precise machine made patterns. His ceramics are material led with a sense of spontaneity. Each of his pieces are skillfully worked into pleasing symmetry and striking shapes. Nathanael's work inspires the collector who desires unique and timeless work to accent and compliment their home.
Wheaton's current body of ceramic works convey a sense of reflection and insight. Intricately carved patterns adorn beautiful functional and decorative works in clay, inviting the utilitarian to open to the preciousness of objects, and to - with their daily use - remember and contemplate the importance of intentionality and presence of mind and spirit.
