Modern Landscape Masters: Brian Mackin: Counterbalance Sculpture

One of my personal design mantras is ‘go big’ and ‘design like you mean it’ – I mean really, don’t be wimpy.
Brian Mackin means it when he throws ceramic pots that are bigger than he is. Using his whole body, he shape pieces that fit into a kiln 9 ft long and 50 inches square. Used by great hotels, restaurants and retail outlets, his forms are in great demand for both indoors and outdoor garden and landscape applications.

  1. I love the counterbalance sculpture. It is beautiful. I have been looking for “something” for my backyard but after seeing that photo I am definitely inspired. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I can’t imagine what it would take to throw a pot that size. I really enjoyed throwing while I was in college, but haven’t kept up with it. Thank you for sharing these pictures, they are amazing, and inspiring.
