All Prints are taken of my one-of-a-kind sculptures. 16" x 20" x 1 1/2
INTEREST: Take my ceramics to another level by combining found objects which reflect emotion and contemplation.
PROCESS: Mixed media and found objects
AESTHETICS: It’s all about “problem-solving”. Work to “engage & elevate”
I develop custom raku glazes which are lead-free and formulated to create dazzling effects on varied surfaces of non-functional pottery and sculpture. No two finished pieces will ever be the same because the metals (silver, copper, cobalt, iron) and colorants of the glazes are brought to the surface by flame and reduction to present themselves in a unique way.
I am amazed by the level of influence that my 30 years of experience as an antique dealer, has had on my clay creations. From 17th century red-ware, to 21st century porcelain, where the struggle between form vs. function is constant. My work is influenced by 16th century Japanese potters, European Modernists and 20th century abstract expressionists.
Willem de Kooning; a Dutch-American artist in the 20th Century who specialized in abstract expressionism, a style of painting also made popular by artists such as Jackson Pollock
One of Nancy’s raku chargers “Autumn” has been featured in the book “500 RAKU”, published by Lark. Her winning entry distinguishes itself with combination of glazes, and its application.
