2020 Show: Peter will be displaying and selling from his studio at:

602 San Souci Dr.
Roseburg

After retiring in 2008 from a large engineering firm I returned to the Northwest to take up pottery full time. I primarily work in Raku to create large oriental vases and whimsical animal shaped vessels. I attempt to contrast form, color, and texture, often by attaching hand built sculpture to wheel thrown jars and lids. I live outside of Roseburg up the North Umpqua River and welcome visitors to my studio.

For the 2020 Clayfolk Show and Sale, Marydee will be displaying her work, along with Bonnie Morgan, Lorene Senesac, and Cheryl Kempner at Ashland Art Works on Oak Street:

 

I have been making pottery for, amazingly, over half a century. It began as, and still is a hobby though a rather intense one. These days most of my work is made from slabs of clay. The flowers are a new and fun adventure. Some hang on the wall while others have metal stems with leaves to place directly in the garden.

Christopher Borg

Chris Borg is a stay at home dad and potter who lives on a small farm in Pleasant Hill, Oregon. Most of his work is fired at home in a high fire gas kiln or a car kiln where soda ash is added as a flux. He also participates in long firings of collaborative wood kilns that can cook over a hundred hours for unique results. He really enjoys creating functional kitchen wares and the alchemy of homemade decorative slips and glazes.

Island Textures

 

As a clay artist, I am inspired and frequently surprised by clay’s versatility. I enjoy making use of texture, contrast, color and multiple elements to make forms from teapots to birdhouses that are esthetically pleasing and somewhat humorous.  I frequently incorporate some reference to human form or movement.  At other times, I simply enjoy the technical challenges of constructing a difficult form. Sometimes my art stops just short of kitsch, sometimes not, and it frequently leaves the observer wondering if the object is really made of clay.

During the 2020 Clayfolk Show, John will display his work by appointment at his studio:

560 S Oregon St.
Jacksonville
541-899-8285

When starting pottery in 1970 most potters were following the Asian or European tradition of design. My inspiration came from the many fine examples of Native American ceramic design. Mimbres, Sikyatki and Pre Columbian were my primary departure points. The focus has been to combine, distill and contemporize these styles and also to define the archetypes from which they evolved. The last 20 years has been spent exploring Asian motifs and finding a fusion/commonality with the west. The techniques and materials employed for surface decoration are developed to achieve a classic but natural appearance. The hope is to produce works that will not be clichés and will withstand the test of time. The Archetypes and designs in the works are meaningful to me but the viewer should derive there own meaning. I feel each piece is made for someone, I just have to wait for him or her to claim it. “I feel my work is a study and distillation of design.”

John also offers classes at his studio in Jacksonville. Please visit the following links for his Raku ,and slip casting and mold making class details.

Raku Fish

Nina came to Oregon from Sweden and she loves to create funny personalities and characters in the pottery fish. They are hand thrown on a pottery wheel and Raku fired. Because of the opportunity for variation in Raku pottery, each personally signed ceramic fish ornament is unique.

You can find Nina’s fish in select galleries across the US.

I began working with clay in my forties, and felt like I finally knew what I wanted to do when I grew up! I’m still working on it (clay, and growing up), and enjoying the journey. There is always more to learn and discover in this ancient art. I had the opportunity to teach ceramics in a high school, and still enjoy sharing with others of all ages the delight I find in ceramics.

My work ranges from traditional, wheel-thrown tableware, to heavily textured, handbuilt whimsy. I also make tiles and a form I call tile collage, which combines tile and mosaic in a repurposed frame.
