This is Amy's first time as a participant in Teabowl National and the first piece in her gallery is her accepted piece. The thing I like most about Amy's work are the textured surfaces. They are simply luscious and eye-catching.
Once her thrown pots are leatherhard, she alters the forms by trimming, carving, stamping, and adding sprigs, knobs, handles. She uses a white stoneware. After bisquing, she applies various commercial underglazes & glazes mixed at home.
She owns and operates Pigeon Road Pottery in Wisconsin's Northwoods and 'made the leap' to full time potter in 2014. See more of Amy's wonderful pieces on her website:
Allison is a first time participant in KCCG Teabowl National. The first pot in her gallery is her accepted piece. The naturalness and spontaneity of the wood/salt firing marks are what appeal to me the most.
She makes her work at Highfield Pottery, the site of her home and studio in Cascade, Maryland.
She has had much experience in the educational field and has been an apprentice with Bill Van Gilder.
Her work has been in numerous national and international shows, including 'Strictly Functional' and the 'Orton International Cone Box Show'. Check out her work at:
