Artist Statement: With interests in mid-century design, pop-culture and craftsmanship Sam Knopp creates functional ceramics that are playful, minimal and richly tactile. Excited by the materiality and process of ceramics she researches and develops her own clay-bodies and glazes putting them together in unexpected combinations to explore the relationship of surface to form, manufactured to handmade, and function to sculpture.
