Harris Ginsberg

Harris Ginsberg returned to the creative arts after 30 years as a psychologist, initially in higher education and subsequently in the business world as Vice President of Executive Leadership and Talent Development at Pfizer, IBM, ADP, JPMorgan Chase and Colgate Palmolive. Initially trained in oil painting and water colors, Harris explored alternative media: silk-screening, needlepoint and pottery over the last three decades before discovering his passion for clay when he left Corporate America.

Inspired by the natural colors and textures in Tuscan and Provencal landscapes, he reproduces the colors of the Mediterranean in his wheel thrown bowls and dishes. Each one-of-a-kind hand-built shell captures the look and feel of the sand and sea from New England summers. Molten sea glass collected at the Connecticut shore complements some porcelain and stoneware shells.

Hand-built plates and trays also capture the feel of the dunes, the sky, the water and sea grass found on the dunes of Race Point and Nauset beaches on Cape Cod. In fact, some pieces include iron-rich sand collected from the beach to reflect Harris’ love of the New England shore.
