Ceramicist Ben Medansky is basically a household name in Los Angeles. His work has become somewhat ubiquitous, appearing in places from Go Get Em Tiger to ForYourArt’s Give Good Art. Ben’s ceramics have earned a bit of an It status, joining other local pot people from Adam Silverman to Tracy Wilkinson to LA ceramic god Peter Shire in popular pot people.
Over the weekend, Medansky debuted a collection of new works at and for Poketo. His presence is immediately felt as his loud Yves Klein Blue vases draw the eye, pulling you by the four feet tall branch arms that reach out of them. They line a woody wall and fill a tiered table: there are small pots as tall as a pinky, ceramic cube experiments, familiar drinking glasses, geometric coffee cups, and pots with pots on them. They all feel very Ben and they certainly represent an artist’s past, present, and future.
