Artists Open Studio Dates:

November 26, 27, 28 & December 4, 5

At the Station Road Pottery studio, Elizabeth throws and stretches clay to create pottery that is utilitarian, comfortable to hold and a pleasure to look at. Balancing form, function and fun gives meaning and inspiration to her work. She celebrates the bond between people that enjoy her pottery and the maker.

Enjoy the bowls, mugs, pitchers and platters as much as she does. All pieces are food-safe, dishwasher, microwave and oven-safe.

 

 

Artist Statement:
Getting messy with art has never been an issue for me. Since forever, I have enjoyed a variety of media, but feel most at home up to my elbows in clay.
My interest in pottery resurfaced about 20 years ago when I started throwing bowls for the Empty Bowls Project . This event raises funds for a local soup kitchen and engages many community volunteers, including local potters, who create hundreds of soup bowls for an annual dinner. Patrons purchase handmade bowls, enjoy a soup and bread supper and bring bowls home as a reminder of the fight against hunger.

Working in my pottery studio, throwing and stretching clay into unique pieces is both a meditative and exciting experience. In the wheel or hand-building, the process of creating pottery-starting from a ball of clay to the end product of a vessel that may be enjoyed for many years- is both humbling and inspiring.

The Empty Bowl Project has influenced the direction my pottery has taken. Keeping my work functional gives my pottery meaning. Hearing back from people who use and enjoy my pottery is deeply gratifying.
