Danny Meisinger is known for wheel-thrown and altered white stoneware or porcelain functional wares and large non-functional sculptural vessel forms.  Some of these are non-functional pitchers and bowls are 4 feet tall or wide. Meisinger finishes his works by dipping them in a glaze, often with an added overspray glaze application. The surfaces often present the contrast between smooth highly polished and textured areas. Meisinger’s favorite pieces are inspired by the work of the ancient Greek ceramists.
