Mediums: Ceramics. Wheel thrown and altered stoneware.

Darrell Finnegan was born in Plymouth, MA; resides in Boston, MA; studied at Interlochen Arts Academy Interlochen, MI; Mass. College of Art Boston, MA Ceramics Program at Office for the Arts, Harvard Allston, MA.

The work of Darrell Finnegan is a combination of both wheel thrown and altered stoneware techniques. Bold, utilitarian forms are oxidation fired with glazes formulated to show depth and surface variation, contrary to the perceived limitations of the electric kiln. Inspiration is drawn from the rural pottery traditions; the honest approach of English country slipware and the spontaneous surface gesture of Japanese Onda.

Currently Darrell Finnegan is working on numerous glaze tests, trying to perfect an elusive color that requires specific firing and cooling profiles. He also elbows deep into making over sized, botanically inspired forms and large covered vessels.
