Paula West - “I enjoy making handmade, functional, useful objects that can become a favorite mug or bowl, reached for day after day. The smooth, white, translucent qualities of porcelain are the perfect canvas for my black and white patterns, whimsical motifs and carved surfaces. I merge function, craft and art to create vessels that enhance your daily meals and special gatherings with family and friends. Whimsical and elegant, contemporary and fresh, my work brings connection and meaning, to me as the maker and to you who use my pots.”
Joe Cooper - “My intention is to create a tactile and visual record of process. I work with oil paint, encaustic, canvas, paper, various metals, wire and wood to arrange responses to natural and man-made architectures.
I seek to find a balance between organized pattern and random marks. I am fascinated by the intrinsic properties of various materials, which I explore through contrast and juxtaposition."
