In 1970, friends invited me to join them at the Renaissance Faire in Marin County, California, telling me it was a good place to sell pottery. It was great fun and started me on my way. One thing lead to another and I started competing nationally when I began showing at the American Craft Council Show held annually at Ft. Mason in San Francisco. While there, friends suggested that I try going to the Baltimore Winter Market held every February by the same organization. That was a very big step for me but one that really launched my career. I did my first show there in 1987 and continued until 2000. That show exposed me to a sophisticated national audience and led to many other good things, including making a living doing my art. Please visit my website for my current collection of work.

My work is wheel thrown porcelain with hand sculpted fauna motifs.  Airbrushed matte glazes fired to maturity in an oxidation kiln.  Signed and dated.

My studio is open by appointment throughout the year.

Gone Rogue Treasures
Gold Hill Or.

 

My  fascination with pottery from ancient cultures and traveling the world has been my inspiration for creating “Gone Rogue Treasures”.  I use volumetric transfer to put the images that inspire me on my work. I’m originally from Walnut Creek Ca.  Now, I’m happy to be in Gold Hill, Oregon where I spend as much time as possible in my Pottery Barn.

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.

Ashley Ambrosio is a multidisciplinary artist and teacher, originally from British Columbia, Canada and the creative hands + heart behind Spring + Vine. Offering functional handmade pottery, natural soap and beginner workshops since the summer of 2010. Her distinct style is characterized by the harmonious balance she aims to achieve between form and function, with each creation being one-of-a-kind and designed to elevate the rituals of our everyday experience. Most drawn to clay in its natural state, Ashley’s work highlights the techniques of marbling, texture, sgraffito engraving and a special wood firing from time to time. 

Spring + Vine was founded in 2018 and has since evolved into a loyal group of customers, students.. and friends! With an emphasis on supporting youth based programs, self-observation, and honoring the beginner mind with meditative play, Ashley is so grateful to share the beauty of clay with our community and beyond.

Woodland Sun

Clay’s flexibility and resilience draws me to it. I love its ability to capture our earthly life with its perfections and imperfections, as well as, its willingness to be worked and reworked, dried, vitrified, used, maybe loved, and/or cracked up. Recently I have begun to participate in event of wood-firing my pottery with others, which has deepened my desire to create with raw nature. In that vein, my ceramic pieces aim to be like recycled remnants of life, like driftwood on a beach, boulders on a hill, beliefs in an old spiritual practice, or relics dug up from a primitive society.

Twenty years ago, my family settled down on Woodland Sun, an homestead on the edge of the Applegate Valley in Southern Oregon. Wood harvested from our property heats my studio; solar charged batteries power my wheel; rain water collected off my studio roof moistens my clay and helps my clean my tools; and the heat of the sun in our greenhouse and garden dries many of my ceramics.

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.

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.

I’ve always had a fascination with ceramics, but as a busy single mom, I never imagined making time and space for me to enter the clay world. When a small window in my daughter’s schedule opened, I dove into the world of ceramics as a bucket list item, and immediately fell in love with working with clay. My work started as strictly functional but has expanded into artistic pieces. When I’m not behind the wheel, I can be found pounding words out on my laptop, or plucking the strings of my bass.

Kilned with Kindness

 
 

I first fell in love with clay in high school and haven’t stopped my obsession since. After graduating from SOU in 2000, I did step away from Clay to become a classroom teacher, but I have recently shifted my focus to Clay full-time. My ceramic philosophy is to create affordable functional works of art that you will use in your daily life! Enjoy looking around and I hope you see some thing you just absolutely love. Most of my work is created on the wheel but I also have a passion for hand building and texture.  I thoroughly enjoy creating art and teaching it!
