November 6-30th. Show opens First Friday November 6, 2020
Artist statement: I have been drawn to clay all my life. My Grandmother made pottery in the 1930s and I think she must have been a subtle influence on me. When the opportunity to take a Ceramics class at UAF in 1970 presented itself, I jumped at the chance. I love the feel of clay and my favourite process is throwing on the wheel. Making a useful object from a raw lump of clay is fascinating and watching the evolution of a form is mesmerizing. I have always admired simple clean designs and shapes. So many different shapes slip through my fingers as I make pots on the wheel, but I always manage to come back to clean geometrically based forms.

While working on this show, I found myself being drawn to bowls. For me there is such a sense of satisfaction in creating a well formed bowl that will be used by its new owner for a multitude of tasks.

Please stop by the Gallery we are open Mon-Sat, 11-4. Closed Sundays.
