Forest Ceramic Company is located on Orcas Island, WA, and owned and managed by Sean Forest Roberts. 

With a background in chemistry and four years of work experience in science labs, I bring an experimental mindset to my artistic process.  My work is constantly changing as I develop new tools in my experimentation in the studio.  I am deeply fascinated by the underlying randomness in the patterns and structures of nature, and I attempt to replicate some of those effects in my work. 

My primary current work is the product of 5 years of experimentation with marbling colored slips.  Colored liquid clays are mixed and poured to create the vast array of patterns available in my series.
