This is Gratia's first time in KC Clay Guild Teabowl National...and...she has two accepted pieces...the first two in her gallery. I am featureing her functional pieces here, but she has sculptural pieces as well as paintings on her website. I love the random patterns, whimsical drawings and decals and unique forms of her white- ware.
Gratia holds an MFA from Edinboro University in Pennsylvania and has been a teaching assistant and resident at Arrowmont, Haystack and Watershed. She recently finished a residency at the Ceramics Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Jacob is a newcomer to Teabowl National. His accepted work is just to the right. He describes this pot as wood grain textured. I like it! His entries are further to the right. I really like the set of tumblers and that picky/lavender soda glaze!! Total YUM!
He hails from Goshen, Indiana, fires in a soda kiln, has been know to dig his own clay.
