Texas based ceramic artist, Wyatt Little creates objects and vessels that are inspired directly from his personal sentiments, memories, and nostalgia. A ’90s child at heart, his objects confound and delight.
“I feel like everything I end up making in some way ties back to my past,” admitted Little in an interview with Analog Watch Co.’s blog. “I often find myself thinking about objects I loved growing up and try to give them new life and context.”
“I grew up in a very creativity focused household,” he recalled. “My dad was always at a drafting board and my mom did a lot of drawing and glasswork. To me, art was just natural, and the more and more I worked at it the more it became an integral part of my life and my identity.”
After studying product design, Little eventually grew tired of what he calls “all the branding and plastic junk the field tends to leave in its wake.” He turned his attention to ceramics where he found more substance. “A lot of my new stuff is very much in the same nostalgic vein that I normally pull from but lately I’ve been really influenced by simplistic geometry contrasted by fluid motion,” he says.
