Alyson Dal Ponte
Aly’s clay creations reflect her interests in critters and creatures and are the subject of many of her sculptures. Always attracted to natural, earthy forms, some of her work is fired in a gas kiln using stains, washes, raku glazes or smoke-fired using horse hair/southwest and saggar style firings with leaves and branches from nature.
Aly taught classes and demonstrated her artisan skills at the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center in White Springs, Florida. She is a past member of the Potters Council, the Artist Guild of Live Oak and the High Springs Art Co-op of north central Florida. Her work has been exhibited on artist studio tours, in exhibits and juried art shows, boutiques and galleries in California, Arkansas, Florida and the Rogue Valley.
