Clackamas County Arts Alliance Submission

We submitted for the Clackamas County Arts Alliance Exhibit as a group of 5 artists:  

We are a group of potters that met while playing with clay giving us an opportunity to explore, learn and share our knowledge and passion of clay with each other and with anyone that finds us.  The age of our group spans the teen-age years through retirement allowing for a diverse prospective on the world around us and how this impacts our clay work.  As distinct as each artist’s style, visitors will have an opporutinty to see various surface decorative techniques as well as get an appreciation for the different firing methods available in the world of ceramics.  Stay tuned…….
