Lewinger, like many ceramicists of his ilk, is also now playing with scale. “This is a larger vessel I was commissioned to make for a private client,” he says. “I’m looking forward to working more in this vein, though that particular world is a little mysterious to me. Art is where I came from, academically, and thought I was going to pursue, but it’s something I haven’t cultivated yet. Anyway, it was exciting to work on a larger piece that didn’t have to be functional. I’m thinking about other larger objects that can be made in ceramics, too, like stools or side tables.”
