After 25 years of working in clay, utility continues to serve as the foundation for my ideas. The pots I make, no matter how simple or complex, are meant to be experienced on a physical and visual level. The way an object carries, lifts, cradles, pours and contains are properties which I strive to make engaging for the user, offering more than just convenience.

After an initial stage of concept drawing the idea evolves by working in multiples. The serial approach not only keeps me focused on progressively solving the immediate problems but also presents, at various stages throughout the process, numerous possibilities for other work

It seems that the contemporary potters whose work has impact and a strong sense of the maker are those who make connections to ceramic history. It is such a vast source of inspiration its hard to ignore. I live in a house that is filled with folk pottery from our own North American tradition, China and a lesser number of European examples. I have been to Europe three times and to China twice primarily to get close to the museum collections for a better understanding, not to mention the thrill of being in the environment they were made in.

Ancient Chinese bronze vessels have recently inspired a more formal attitude in the work. In addition I have been including rural architectural references that suggest a sense of monumentality within a functional scale.

The use of pressed molded forms combined with thrown elements has facilitated the development of some of these new ideas. The process is a refreshing change from 25 years of throwing and has generated a new way of thinking about form, which has few limitations.

BIOGRAPHY
Bruce Cochrane was born in Vancouver and moved to Montreal at the age of ten. There he was introduced to ceramics at John Abbott College and was encouraged by his first instructor, Julia Manitius, to continue his education at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, where he studied with Walter Ostrom. From 1976-78, he attended the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, where he received his M.F.A. He has taught ceramics at Sheridan College Ontario since 1978 and continues to conduct workshops and exhibit on an international level. His work is in the collection of such notable institutions as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto and the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. In 2003 Bruce was elected to The Royal Canadian Academy of Arts and in 2001 he was a finalist for The Saidye Bronfman Award. Bruce’s home and studio are located in Mississauga, Ontario.
