Patrick Johnson - Vermont
As a musician often has a favorite instrument, many artists have a favorite medium. Patrick has chosen clay because it is warm, appealing, humble and sincere as the earth itself. It is unique as the most impressionable and spontaneous material. It records every thought, movement, hesitation and confidence of the artist handling it. Finally, with its associations and history, it is the best choice to explore the human figure in relationship to other life and to the landscape, a central concern of his work.
Natalie Blake – Brattleboro, Vermont
Rich colors, sculptural lids, and a fluid style are all recognizable features of Natalie Blake’s pottery.Her work is at once modern and classical, aqueous and verdant-the visible result of years spent developing her artistic voice through international travel, apprenticeships, and formal training.
Diana Thomas – Maine
"I have always loved experimenting with glazes in an effort to discover more dynamic, alluring, inviting, sensuous surfaces.At first I worked exclusively with porcelain, trying to show off the colors as best I could.After awhile I found that by being prudent with the bold, beautiful colors and by contrasting them with other types of surfaces, they became even more alluring and special than if splashed over the entire piece.A few years ago I discovered firing.I felt like I had found the other piece of the puzzle.The combination of flame, ash, and a little salt brought the crackling and flashing slips to life, and provided the contrast with colorful glazes that I had been searching for.
The forms I am most drawn to are simple ones.The basic shapes allow the active surfaces to exist without complication.I try to pay close attention to the nuance of line and proportion in order to bring beauty and strength to the shapes.I hope to make work that endures through time."
Nancy Adams – Oregon
"My work is individually wheel-thrown white earthenware vessels with handcarved flora and fauna motifs.Low-fire glazes are airbrushed on the ware in multiple coats and then fired to maturity in an electric kiln.I prefer the quiet atmosphere of the lone studio potter.I’m interested in interspecies relationship, the vessel, and the art of tea as a bridgeway."

Nina Bernardi – Massachusetts
"I have been working on ceramics for more than ten years, opening my first studio in 1993. After my bachelor's degree in Fine Arts, I have focused my attention on the development of "Utilitarian Art"; art that I define as the creation of unique objects meant to be not only admired but also used every day.
Having been raised in a culture where color is an expression of the picturesque environment, my work is a mixture of vivid tropical colors, memories of my childhood, the translucency of the Caribbean sea and a deep influence of the native pre-Columbian cultures. The influence of some European artists can also be seen in my work. From Paul Klee, I like his approach to some sense of primitivism in children's art and their freedom to create signs. From Huntertwasser, his use of color like an architecture of the space and from Niki de Saint Phalle, the use of vivid colors and the sense of freedom from her monumental figures."
Ed and Kate Coleman – Swannanoa, North Carolina
"Our work is a collaboration between two artists -- separate people with ideas that merge.
Each new piece begins as one person’s idea, yet the finished design holds the creative spirit of both of us. In sharing our lives together, working side by side, we share moments of inspiration, and many common themes appear in our work. We are inspired by nature’s plants, landscapes, and wildlife. We are drawn to both the asymmetry and balance found in creation.
Our designs are purposefully simple -- made for everyday use. We believe that life is made simpler, more beautiful, and more livable when surrounded by things made by hand. Every piece is made with our hearts, bodies, and minds. Our work is created for those who search for this quality in fine craft objects. We share this connection with those who own our work."
Marsha Rafter – Northern California
"My work now involves creating unique mosaic art with intricate shattered glass pieces from recycled sliding glass doors. Using materials such as paint, fabric, ribbon, patterned paper, colored foil, drawings, photographs, and printed text, I create a collage on a clay piece I have made or on a wooden object. Each piece is then made complete with a cover of clear tempered glass that I apply to the surface and then the piece is grouted and sealed. The glass opens up another dimension within each piece, where colors sparkle and textures and patterns dance. Due to the fact that the thick pieces of shattered glass often contain webs of internal fractures, the pieces have an unusual and extraordinarily refractive quality. The way the eye is drawn to the piece due to the play of light on the surface of the glass and then subsequently drawn in to the depth of the piece and what lies beneath the surface, are what keep me endlessly intrigued with the process and the possibilities."
Bell Pine Art Farm – Creswell, Oregon
"Bell Pine Art Farm is a home business located in the Willamette Valley between the Cascade Mountains and the Oregon Coast Range. Friends and Family have helped and inspired us to make clay art since 1986.
We use the language of art to tell stories about the heart and soul of relationships. Currently our inner and outer worlds of raising two children, building a home business and working together with other artists to produce our designs, makes for plenty of material to draw from.
Our sculptures are handmade from northwest stoneware. We're committed to the quality and safety of our products because we make them and care about them, and our kids are underfoot during the process."
J. Davis – Texas
Living in Far West Texas has had a profound effect on John Davis’ pottery.The rugged beauty and history of the Big Bend region helped inspire John’s raku line.Inspiration comes from both the mountainous beauty, and the rich history associated with the area.The raku firing process originated in Japan, but the rustic look creates the essence of an ancient civilization, like an artifact unearthed from a primitive Indian camp ground around the Rio Grande riverbed.
