Artist David LaMure, Jr. lives in southern Idaho. He has worked with clay as a medium for over two decades. During that time, he developed a style uniquely his own. The size and detail of each piece he creates is a bold approach to using the Raku process. He has since expanded his expertise to include bronze sculpture and painting.
I want to show the symbiotic relationship between the vessel and the way it is altered, much like all living things and the earth.
LaMures work is a refreshing approach to an age-old firing technique. While many modern potters use low-fire Raku for its simple and spontaneous appearance, David has managed to successfully mix the warmth and softness of the technique with a contemporary concern for bold forms. LaMures forms are huge, dynamic and commanding.
