    About The Work

    Los Angeles-based artist Ben Sanders started making his painted pots in 2014. He considers them a mode of sketching. His paintings are meticulously planned and painstakingly executed, whereas the pots allow him to explore ideas, color palates and often he challenges himself formally to consider how little information he can present and have the pot still read as a face. Originally, as they piled up in his studio he decided he wanted to sell them with his artist friends’ budgets in mind. He would finish one, post it on Instagram and the first person to email him could purchase the pot. Over the years, they have become something of a collector item and Sanders has shipped them all over the world. But not before they are documented. Early in 2019 Sanders will publish a book that documents the first 160 pots.
