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.

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.

You can visit me and see more of my work on the web.

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.

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.

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.
