Glen Mantie, self trained potter and clay sculptor, full time mud mangler.
Functional work is my primary focus, but I still want to bring an artistic look to my work.
I am influenced lately by my interests in fantasy literature and films, games and prop making.
I have been putting more of these influences into my work, finding my own direction.
I believe that if I am not doing work that I love, it not only shows but I am betraying myself.
I am also fascinated with sculpture, have taken a few workshops from some very talented artists, and would like to pursue more in this direction while still being able to exist in this world.
