David Norton, a self-taught full-time potter from Round Hill, Virginia, has been making functional stoneware and ceramic sculpture since 1975. While he works mainly from his home studio called Potterosa, he has been a participating artist at the Torpedo Factory Arts Center in Alexandria, Virginia for over 42 years. He has exhibited and taught at the Smithsonian’s Renwick Museum and given workshops in Venezuela, Poland and in the Washington DC area.
“I enjoy making pots that people use to enrich their daily lives. When making my pottery becomes like breathing, the rhythm and harmony that I seek in my life is reflected in the objects that I make. Often given as gifts to family and friends, they are symbols of the “humanness” we still share with each other.”
Today, Norton Pottery is enjoyed in homes in over 85 countries on all seven continents. His work has twice received acclaim in the New York Times as well as being voted best local artist by readers of the Loudoun Times Mirror.
