Abby Barringer creates geometric designs that she carves and smooths into her wheel thrown pottery. These patterns are based on her love for equal, consistent, and repeating designs. The work produced by Abby with its meticulous and detailed geometric carving is not only intricate and decorative but also functional. Into the Surface focuses on the ways that different carving patterns influence reactions to and understandings of her vases, bowls, and mugs.
