Ron Nagle was born in San Fransisco, California in 1939. These works are very masculine, even seductive, and the control he had over the clay is incredible and flawless. As the geometry and form of these works are fascinating, the glazes he uses are what is most fascinating to me. Space is broken up by line and changes value, overarching form. He invests himself in these small works, and claims that they are more influenced by painting.
