My name is Damien Overcash and I’m a wheel-based potter from Western North Carolina. When it comes to clay, my inspiration stems from an interest in psychology and understanding myself more consciously. Through building a stable foundation to represent my roots, creating the bellied walls that depict my calming breaths, and forming the structured cuts to enact my decisions, I relate to my work. Coating my silhouette with glaze, I finish the pots by masking them in blues and airy tones so that they invoke an uplifting space. I hope to provide insight on the therapeutic and reflective side of clay.
