Dallas Wooten

Dallas Wooten (Hackettstown, NJ)

“I utilize the flaws, blemishes, and marks created in the process of making, and recontextualize them within intricate patterning inspired by traditional status-imagery, patterns, and materials. My work explores historically utilitarian and simple forms. These pots are then adorned with process and gestural marks abstracted into status-based patterns, such as vine scroll and floral imagery.”
Dallas Wooten was born in Louisville, KY, where he earned his BFA inCeramics from Indiana University Southeast, and his MFA from Ohio University. Wooten founded Wooten Clayworks in 2020 which has recently opened its physical location in Hackettstown, NJ. Wooten currently teaches and curates high quality ceramic exhibitions at Wooten Clayworks where he is working to build a community to share his joy for pottery.
