I think of these pots as modern time capsules, the images are a representation of this place in time.

About the Artist


Dana Bechert (b. 1990) is a Nottingham Pennsylvania-based ceramicist who creates functional art objects. Her hand thrown pottery is often adorned with sgraffito pictographs etched into the object’s pigmented surface before firing to reveal a contrasting layer of white porcelain underneath. Becher’s graphic patterns reference nature, Native American pottery, and Japanese textiles. The resulting designs range from geometrically complex patterns to playful, improvisational doodles.
