Kemper Clay

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

I have been creating in clay for over two decades. My explorations started with a beginning throwing class in Colorado, then to mixing clay and glazes at a community college in Kansas, to independent clay studies in Oregon, and finally to a beautiful studio in Ashland, Oregon. It amazes me how new ideas continue to flow into my head and hands. My signature pieces for many years were very thin hand-built porcelain vessels edged in 24k gold. My mother’s wooden rolling pin was often used to roll a lace texture into the porcelain. I love the balance of the delicate beauty and the inherent strength of these pieces.

Two years ago my worked changed dramatically. Our daughter turned 27 in intensive care after surgery to remove a benign brain tumor. Once I got back to my studio, whimsical shapes, thick clay, and primary colored glazes started to appear. My hands took over and created crazy, nonrealistic birds. These birds looked up at me with funny little beaks and funny little eyes – they made me smile. Our daughter continues her recovery and the birds continue to evolve. There are now clay birds sitting on rocks, birds in clay bird houses, birds in nests, and birds on clay window sills. The whimsy of these creations has helped balance the intensity of life.

Clara Lanyi Ceramics

In my booth, you can find functional tableware meant for daily use, sculptural vase forms, and ceramic jewelry. I use vintage and custom ceramic decals to decorate my work which are fired on in a third firing. Images of scientific diagrams, mythological creatures, and sacred geometry are joined by floral graphics from many eras. The graphics are assembled across a surface of luscious homemade glazes. All my work is hand built or thrown in my home studio in Springfield, Oregon. Please see my website ClaraLanyi.com for more images and information about my process. My holiday sales will be through my Etsy store in 2020, I will post shop updates on Facebook and Instagram.

As a teenager it was love at first sight when I watched clay change its form on a spinning potter’s wheel, and in one form or another it continues to be an important storyline of my life. The focus of my clay work naturally has been the wheel, but I also enjoy hand building, and most recently have taken an interest in sculpture. There always seems like something new to explore and experience in the clay world whether making functional or sculptural pieces, and I want my work to celebrate beauty and the joy of being alive.

Rogue River Pottery

 
I moved to Southern Oregon and retired from my Beauty business about 15 years ago. I needed to fill my creative niche my husband bought me a kiln and a wheel and away I went. I hadn’t done any Pottery since I was in high school which was a very long time ago. I read everything in the library watched every video took every class and started making pots. I do mostly small things. A lot of mugs earrings good small gift items. I love it and hope you will love my things too
