I am a ceramic artist transplanted here in 1965 from Rhode Island. I settled in Liberty (Gassaway) 40 years ago on 165 acres where I raised my family and have my studio and sales gallery.
I fell in love with this matter called clay in high school and have played with it and created pottery ever since.
My wall art consists of clay tiles that are handmade. They are either impressed with various objects before they dry or are carved when leather hard. The tiles are then fired in my kiln and sometimes stained. Lastly, they are smoke-fired in straw. The smoke-firing leaves straw patterns in the clay, and the heat from the fire changes the coloring. I enjoy the straw-firing technique and how it changes the appearance on the surfaces of the tiles. -Arlene Knaak
