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 was raised in Walnut Creek California where I took my first ceramics class. I loved working with clay the second I smelled the earthiness of the freshly opened bag. This passion has evolved 50 years later to my pottery barn in Gold Hill, Oregon. I have taken patterns in my life and used them to evoke the past. I  hope when you see these one of a kind pieces  you feel that you have been transported to Greece, Italy, Israel or anyplace where the art has and always will, amaze.

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…”

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.

Firesong Ceramics

I was born in Southern Oregon when trees covered most of the land. Trees have provided the inspiration for most of my artwork whether it was oil paints, watercolors, or pen and ink drawings. Now they inform my pottery.  Now and then, one can see a touch of geometric precision in a series of pieces. influenced by my study of physics and mathematics. The math and science in my background has helped in glaze formulation.

 

My future husband introduced me to pottery in 1990.  Soon I was developing glazes to set off his pottery and dabbling in creating my own artistic pieces.  Starting in 2006, I began showing and selling my own creations.  I introduce a new collection every several years.  My first successful line was the Spring Reeds which feature sprigged grasses.  This morphed into a line of modern geometric shapes that stood cubes on a vertex to make a vase.  A workshop last fall turned the cubes back on a side and into lidded boxes with inlaid patterns.  My latest series is the Madrone grove collection featuring the negative space between Madrone tree trunks.

My shop on Etsy is called Firesong Pottery.

Psychoceramics

I love what fire can do to clay. And I love working with natural materials, especially wood ash. The drippy, runny effects, as well as the beading of some of the glazes on many of my pots come from wood ash, used as a flux to melt the glaze. (The trick is to make the glaze fluid—but keep it on the pot at 2230 degrees or more.) I often enhance effect with textured slip (a runny, wet clay) applied to the surface. All the pots you see here are made of white stoneware and fired in a gas kiln.

 

My studio is beside the North Umpqua River, near Roseburg, Oregon. Before becoming a potter, I was a psychologist, for nearly three decades, at Umpqua Community College—which explains the name of my pottery business: Psychoceramics.
