A – Mountains
Making wheel-thrown, functional pottery for 40 years. Wood-fired stoneware and earthenware. Figurative drawings on the clay vessels using slips, etched surfaces, and brush work. Glazes, slips, and wood firing give more depth to the surface.
Lively functional and decorative porcelain, each piece softly altered while freshly wheel-thrown. Mugs to candelabra/menorahs. In a soda kiln, flames decorate anticipated edges, and brighten a wide, colorful palette. For daily use and enjoyment.
A community based studio serving the Toe River and surrounding area. We have several artists that call our studio home! Memberships (studio space), classes, private instruction and parties are available! Now with a Co-op gallery / gift shop!
Departing from curiosity, I aspire to heighten awareness of everyday sensorial experiences, highlighting what incited a question or reaction. It is curiosity which invites me to explore memory and emotions, finding a sensual language in the lights and shadows of malleable white clay.
