Bill Campbell has been a potter for 25 years. Across the country, his porcelain is admired for its spectacular color and elegant, crisp forms...each piece maintaining some of the energy of its creator. The glazes dance with surprising vibrancy in unexpected patterns. Functional pots become little moments of celebration within the day to day routine.
|Laura Zindel's work is inspired by the Victorian Cabinets of Curiosity. Her ceramic pieces are hand built from white earthenware, and have leaves, insects, animals and other natural forms. From her decorative ideas Zindel makes pencil drawings. She then silk screens the images, prints them with enamel and collages them onto the finished glaze pieces. She also occasionally draws designs directly onto pieces with glaze pencil. With either method of decorative, the pieces are then re-fired and the final images are permanently melted onto the surface.|

Connecticut artist Bonnie Beatrice began her pottery career in 1984. Over the years, she has developed her technique of weaving delicate strands of porcelain clay into intricate yet classic designs. The unique characteristics of porcelain requires a slow, gradual drying and firing process, taking up to one month to complete each piece. While retaining the porcelain’s natural soft white color the results are gracefully sweeping lines mesmerizing to the eye and delightful to the touch.
