101 Diane Davis, Tortoise Drinking, ceramic stoneware pottery fountain, 11″x11″x11″
|Diane is living the retirement dream! Volunteering at the museum’s pottery studio has been a wonderful opportunity to contribute while continuing her informal ceramics education. Davis’ work can be described as functional pottery with a primitive organic quality, or as she refers to her style – “Mud in the Moment.” After working almost exclusively in reduction for many years, she made the switch to cone 6 electric in setting up her home studio. The submitted set of bowls demonstrates her continued affection for the look of reduction.|
