Texture in Clay

I am a pottery dreamer.   I love how many lovely things you can create out of such a primitive material.  I took one pottery class in college, it was not good.  It is not me, not my thing, I am a very creative person and use a variety of material but not clay.  Too messy, so many steps, big surprises when you open the kiln, I am not a potter.  But I am so drawn to it and the people who create the amazing work. Since I have been thinking about texture in my own work, the possibilities of adding texture to clay work seem endless. Still dreaming here.

These are works by a couple I met in Philadephia last year at an art show.  I hope to be showing some of their work at the Red Thread later this year.

    These are so sculptural! Stunning! If you also took the photos yourself, you’re a pro in that medium, too.

    This is fabulous pottery, great colors and texture. I used to be a potter in another life and I miss it when I see something as creative as this. xo, suzy

    I love to see truly unique pottery. These are gorgeous. I am a pottery wannabe… I just never find the time to learn. Some day…

    I’m a big pottery fan and having had a class and not being very successful with the medium, I truly appreciate the talent involved in making something as wonderful as these!
