Zach works in high-fired translucent porcelain. He is interested in the dichotomy of rural and city; nature and industry. He uses iconic imagery to explore these themes. He influences are as diverse as ceramic traditions (such as Japanese tea bowls and Scandinavian ceramics), Minimalist Architecture, and street graffiti. Zach shares his studio with his wife Adrienne Gradauer. Their studio space is a covered in veranda in their small 1914 house in Maple Creek, SK. The space is 8′ wide and 20′ long, forcing them to keep a clean studio!
