Part of what makes Artshack so special are our lovely and talented members.
Here are just some examples of what comes out of our kilns!
"experiment, practice, and embrace randomness"
"The best thing about ceramics is it's versatility. You can make anything out of it."
"Ceramics for me is finding beauty in the functional while practicing patience and learning to let go of control."
"Experiment, practice, and have patience with yourself."
"I believe in approaching teaching as a form of social engagement, and hope to empower people to find their own language through visual mediums."
"Don't be afraid to experiment. It's not about making the perfect piece, it's about finding your voice."
"Ceramics allow me to discover things about myself through the process of trial, error and repetition."
“ to connect “
“The craft can be extremely unforgiving but it has only taught me how to be more patient and intentional.”
"making familiar things, an illusion of safety."
“I try to exploit the attributes of clay in all it’s different stages of development.”
"Ceramics is for the people! It is a journal and a journey. :-)"
"Some of my earliest memories are of making clay sculptures with my father in our back yard. Clay helps me access the creative impulsivity and unbridled imagination of childhood."
