"Often I am asked, why are all the faces so serious looking? My answer is the face is a caricature of my own face; an image I have used in my artwork for over 30 years since being in college. The serious look is to remind us not to take ourselves too seriously because everyone else can see how ridiculous our self-importance makes us look. What about the bird? What is this? You writing a book or something? I don't know, they are just for fun. I make them and where they find purchase is where they go. You got any more questions, talk to my lawyer."

Vince Sansone is a master potter. His experience with stoneware shows in every piece. At any given time he is a teacher, a student, and a participator in several arts organizations. Through the ceramic process, Sansone transforms raw materials to create objects of beauty or whimsy for the home as well as the community. He also enjoys drawing and cartooning.
