"Exquisite form and quiet strength are the hallmarks of these clay vessels. Merritt's work reflects what pottery is all about."

"The quiet presence of Merritt's pottery can be appreciated in the context of his Japanese mentors, who conveyed to him the subtleties of materials and techniques. He has developed a series of vessels that are majestic in shape and size, even as they remain restrained in their surface treatment. It is the very tension between the expansive form and the fine detail of surface that holds the viewer and commands attention."
