Ceramic artist Brooks Oliver blends state of the art technology with traditional craft in an effort to blur the lines between craft, design, industry, and technology.

By isolating, altering, and exploiting the necessary components that comprise a vessel, he attempts to provide new visions of utilitarian ceramic wares.
