Artists Describing Their Art:

Jeannette L. Jennings - My first cat came as part of the package with some used pottery equipment I purchased in 1979,'Amelia' posed next to me while I worked and soon a small clay cat was produced. This became the favorite piece of all who saw my work. Near the end of the 80's, I decided to specialize in cats: Cat Plates, Watch Cats (sculptures) and Bells, Cat Clocks, and Cat Pins. More recently Cookie Jars have been quite popular. I continue to explore other areas of work: tile, vases, masks, sculpture, and fountains. Neriage: mixing several different clay colors,has been a long time technique used in cats and my other work. All of the work on this site is hand built by me. ...

Alice Buttress - My name is Alice Buttress and I live the lovely highland village of Carrbridge near the Cairngorm Mountains in Scotland. I have been working with clay for the past twenty years and sell my work mainly from my Studio in Carrbridge and at exhibitions. I work in stoneware and porcelain, sculpting, handbuilding and throwing in a traditional representational style. I fire my work in an electric kiln and gas Raku kiln with post firing reduction. Also for the past 7 years I have been chainsaw carving wood sculptures for the garden, most popular carvings are owls, squirrels, and bears. Inspiration for my work comes from historic cultures, legends and my surroundings in the Scottish Highlands....

Kanika Marshall - Kanika Marshall has created a distinctive collection of mixed-media art sculptures, which includes hand-painted tile mosaics and other two-dimensional wall pieces, three-dimensional sculptures, masks, garden art, wearable art, figurines, goddesses, breast cancer survivor art, and tribal-design pottery. She sculpts some pieces by hand from clay, paints them with a color glaze to form the varying hues of skin tones and other colors, and then low fires them in a kiln to ceramic perfection. Many of the pieces are draped with fabulously textured fabrics from Africa, and/or adorned with beadwork, glass, leather, recycled metal, stones, shells, or other finishing touches. Kanika believes her African ancestors work joyously through her hands to create each one-of-a-kind sculpture. Kanika studied with renowned potter/sculptor Ruth Rippon in 1980-81 and with figurative sculptor, Yoshio Taylor, in the early 1990s. Kanika's sculptures have been sold for years in the Crocker Art Museum, numerous art galleries and stores throughout Northern California, at juried art shows, on the World Wide Web, and to art aficionados all over the world. The City of Elk Grove purchased Kanika's "Leather Locks & Five Ancestors" and "Sea Jellies and River Rock." ...

Carl Gray Witkop - Beauty created by natural forces is sublime, sometimes so intense, sometimes hidden. I allow fire to finish my pots to include natural beauty in my creations. I handbuild pots by the coil method then burnish them with a smooth stone. There is no glaze. Other than some color in the clay slips, all the color results from the firing. I remove the pots red hot from the kiln, then finish the firing in a pit. The hot pots contact various fuels such as sawdust, hair, flowers, or weeds, which leave smoke stains and areas which are reduced or oxidized. ...

Raquel Soaz - My work is hand-built by slab and pinch construction using low-fire clay. In my most recent work, I give much attention to colors to complete my work using either glazes, underglazes, cold finishes (acrylics), inks, color pencils, and/or any other I need for communicating my intended vision. Most of my pieces are figurative/objects. Printed and shaped with my childhood country's colors, rhythms and warmth. ...

Nour Sokhon - For Nour Sokhon, art is not just about the embellishment of the world, but about experimenting with the world. Nour's thesis "Gesticulation" reflected her own interest in the crossovers between art and science experiments. Research is a key part of her work, with the usage of challenging materials and physics theories she manages to break through the established rules of creation process and to touch upon what "creating" is really about. Probably the uniqueness of the Lebanese artist Nour Sokhon is to conceptualize the possible coexistence of the ideal of classical beauty with the anti-classical materials, the combination of the divine with the mundane. Her research on multi-materialistic crossovers lead her to overlap different tangible realities, where everything seems to make sense. Compositions which at first seem "simple" and "logical" immediately reveal limitations that are disruptive in the interpretation of reality. This is the Sokhon purpose : remove barriers that distort and confuse the perception of reality. www.noursokhon.com...

Ildiko Toth - I studied art, design and master ceramics in Hungary, Budapest.I advance studied set design and architecture in the United States.I was introduced to the fascinating world of sculpting by my Master Artist:Zsuzsa Morvay of Hungary. My traveling throughout the World inspires and helping me to find the tools to complete my task: To define The Poetry-of-Clay. In my work I strive to combine the valuable essence of centuries into creations of art objects-to be placed in today's architectural enviroment.My goals include working with new materials, discovering, combining and stretching their possibilities. ...

Tony Briffa - As a Maltese artist living and working in Denmark, I feel my feet immersed in two very different cultures., the central Mediterranean and the Scandinavian. Considering this, my work does have a particularly unique twist. Over the years, I have sought inspiration from various sources, both natural and man-made which lead me to develop my own idiom in expressing myself in clay. My latest work mainly attempts to transform retrospective images of form and space from my past experience into 3D sculptures.A At times, small decisions regarding the final shape, colour and texture of my work seem so hard to take. In these moments, I struggle to strike a balance between conscious and unconscious impulses to make the right decision. Describing technically my work, I would say it is mostly hand build, some fired ware with applied photographic and silkscreen decals, on-glazes besides other glazing methods. ...
