Melissa makes forms using both pinching and slab building techniques, and enjoys combining various colors and techniques to achieve depth of surface and interesting results. She sees the surfaces as a combination of Color Field painting converged with Ben Day dots of Pop Art. The surfaces are layered with under glazes, glazes and luster. Melissa is interested in the combinations of these materials and their resulting emotive qualities.
Melissa Mytty strives to make beautiful, colorful and happy artwork to function well and bring joy to every day objects. Each form is one of a kind hand made and uniquely glazed by creating variations on each design.
