I first experienced throwing on the wheel in a pottery class at College of the Redwoods around 1975. Some decades later I rediscovered the joy of playing with mud when I realized that the school I was teaching at, Sisson Elementary in Mount Shasta, California  had a wonderfully equipped ceramics studio just begging to be used. For the last ten years of my teaching career, I took my students into the studio, twice a week to create “kid art” by hand building and wheel throwing. Three years ago when I retired, I began taking ceramics classes from Sean Kenny at College of the Siskiyous. I now share a lovely studio with my talented wife Patt. Our view of  the Eddy mountain range and Mount Shasta gave me the inspiration for this series of carved mugs.

Artist’s Statement
 
 Art has always been part of my life, as a writer, a weaver of fiber and baskets. I also work in metal, wood and paint, but I didn’t discover the joy of ceramics until I retired from teaching Math, Art and Science at a Middle School in Mt. Shasta. . I think John Prine’s lyrics best sum up my approach to being a maker of art:
              “…Life is a blessing, it’s a delicatessen
               of all the little things that you do…”

I am a bonsai hobbyist, and therefore appreciate the importance of creating just the right container for a specific bonsai. I would be honored to create a bonsai container for your collection in the size and style most appropriate for your needs.

Wheel-thrown functional pottery has been and continues to be my strength, but currently my interests are moving towards sculptural, voluptuous shapes with a functional voice. Clay is my medium because it invites one to feel the work. I like to carve –  carving takes an essentially flat surface and makes it three-dimensional. I love developing glazes that are interesting both to the eye and to the touch. Glazes that enhance the carved lines are my specialty. I am interested in the visual form and also the feel of the pot.  I have developed glazes that are pleasant to hold as well as to see. It pleases me to see someone pick up one of my pots to feel the weight of it or to feel the curve of a sculpture. I work in stoneware and porcelain (a pure form of stoneware) clays.  As the name implies, stoneware is vitrified in the firing, turning the clay back into “stone”, through firing at 2200 degrees F. The work is hard, waterproof and durable. My life long involvement with clay began with a yearlong apprenticeship focusing on functional pottery. I have had a home studio in California, Maryland and Oregon and have shared my love of clay through teaching in community programs in Iowa, Maryland, and Oregon.

Strictly Functional Ceramics

To make it short I’ll skip years and years of my life before pottery. Suffice to say after spending 30(ish) years working I decided to retire and realized for once I had some free time – this was an opportunity to explore. After some fits-and-starts I took a wheel-throwing class at Club Mud Ceramics, a clay-art cooperative here in Eugene. I was immediately taken by the wonderful blending of the technical (my background) and the artistic. After eight Wednesday classes in 1998 I was hooked. In the ensuing years I have taken classes at the U of O and LCC, and attended numerous workshops in an effort to develop my skills and improve the aesthetics of my craft. As my business name implies, I focus my work primarily on functional ware for the home.

Stardancer Clay

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.

I have been involved with pottery since the early 1990’s with an emphasis on wheel thrown pieces.  Currently I am focusing on Sgraffito.  Images from nature are my inspiration and my one of a kind pieces are not only decorative but functional and suitable for the table.
