The Cup: Robert W. Archambeau - Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

My aim is not the decorative or didactic or clay as visual entertainment, it is not political.  Instead, I hope my work is, in some measure, a distillation of the magic and mystery that surrounds me on this, my part of the Canadian Pre-Cambrian Shield.  It is, at its best, pottery that is serene, rich in detail, detached from the mundane and timeless.
