Welcome to Remolino Arts
Remolino Arts is Robert's hand-made pottery business.
Most of his training has been through the Kirkland Arts Center. He produces functional ware, decorative pieces, and figurines in a variety of clays and finishes.
He enjoys working with many different finishing styles:
- Wood fire - in which the wood used as fuel becomes part of the glaze
- High fire - the depth and interplay of glazes fired in reduction
- Pit fire - smoke and fumes trapped in the clay create the free-form finishes
- Low fire - the precise results of glazes fired in oxidation
- Mid-Range - a little bit of both high and low
- Raku - the metalic sheens from glazes with high metal content
With so many ways to finish, he is often experimenting.
Robert's work can be found at the Kirkland Arts Center Store in ParkPlace Mall, Kirkland, Washington, and The Lucky Dumpster in Edison, Washington.
