Artist Listing

Beth Holyoke

I have made lots of different kinds of ceramic pieces this year – fun mugs, small plates in sets, and elegant bottles and some serious platters for the wall. My interest in the refugee crisis in Europe will often find its way into my work in small and not so small ways. I also create small figures, both animal and human creatures that inhabit their own worlds. My media is low fire earthen ware clay, red in color. I love to work with color and texture in all these clay pieces.

Dianne Collinson

I am drawn to hand building as my primary method of making. From flat slabs of soft clay I love creating pieces with the natural curves, gestural forms and richly textured surfaces found in nature; the shape of a leaf recorded like a fossil in clay, the texture of the forest floor, ancient and rich, the ivory patina of old bones, reflected in the crafted object. Because all of my pieces are hand built rather than wheel thrown, the naturally occurring irregularities that happen with clay during firing add to the the organic, wabi-sabi feel of my functional ceramics. My Porcelain Botanicals have become my signature work. While working with the clay to create a form, I impress leaves and flowers into the piece and use this natural material as a resist for a dark slip or glaze. The surface is then washed with color to create intaglio-like impressions in the highly contrasted work.
