DeWeese says of his works in the show:
“I am inspired and challenged by the art of pottery and strive to make work that is successful on multiple levels. I want my pots to be well-designed and comfortable to use; to be rich with ceramic wonder, and seductive to behold; and to have reference to history and the field of ceramic art to spark the imagination.

This exhibition features a range of pottery forms that are of interest to me at this time, including covered jars, platters, baskets, various pouring vessels, and cups. The jars and platters serve as a platform for the exploration of narrative, with drawings enveloping the forms, emerging in and out of the glazed surface. The larger vessels become paintings in the round, and I am interested in how the image unfolds as you move around the pot. The baskets and pouring forms are animated, and reference the figure in their posture. I continue to be amused by the characters they become. The cups are perhaps the most intimate. I enjoy the potential of their daily kiss, and future interaction in the hand and the home.”
