Chuck Hindes is known for hand-built functional and sculptural wood-fired ceramics. Signature forms include tea bowls, teapots, and vases. The importance of gesture and asymmetry is clearly present in Hines' creations.  Surface techniques include incising and paddled textures.  Work is influenced by the Japanese Wabi-Sabi aesthetic, and the Abstract Expressionist painting movement of the mid-20th century.

Work is fired unglazed, the wood firing creating the color palette and textures.
