Olivia Tarricone

Artist statement:

Olivia Tarricone is an architect by training, and she lives in Houston, TX with her husband and baby son. Before moving to Houston in 2017, she lived in Philadelphia where she sought out the pottery wheel as an escape from straight lines and a retreat into the organic, rounded forms that emerge from a lump of clay. She fell in love with clay because of the humility it demands, and the connection it creates to the earth and the hands that form it.

After working in a community studio, she has transitioned to making work in her own studio space. She is currently experimenting with how forms can create their own surface decoration as they are dipped into liquid and record an intersection with the liquid plane.

Maura Ferrero-Baroni

Artist statement:

What mostly attracts me to ceramics is the marriage between three art forms; the actual creation of an art object - whether it is wheel throwing or hand building-, the glazing and the firing.

'When creating my artwork, I strive to harmonize the relationship between from, function and nature. My pieces are the result of the use of simple organic forms and I usually stay clear from fussy decorations.

My pieces are mostly functional by they can also be used decoratively. In either case I hope that it will be an enjoyable and peaceful experience.

Doni Langlois

Artist statement:

Doni Langlois creates earthy ceramic art that include both functional and sculptural works. Her technique of layering multi textured pieces of clay and color remind us of the variations of life; where we reinvent daily and stand upon all that has come before. “I love surprise and delight – and am interested in the juxtaposition of whimsy within the serious interior design. My themes are what I feel most humans long for - love, connection and peace.

Lana Loveland

Artist statement:

My first experience with clay was back in the mid-70s in college! Even though my career took me from Graphic Design to High School Art Instructor, I’ve always taken workshops and maintained a Clay and Painting Studio and sold my work. 

I go back and forth between the two mediums and feel being a painter heavily influences my pottery surface techniques. Earthenware provides the white surface upon which to paint and fill with color and pattern, while Stoneware provides the rich layers of color, texture, and shape. Raku gives me the high contrast of subtle color with the intensity of black, leaning towards a more contemporary style.

Jessica Phillips

Artist statement :

Jessica Phillips’ ceramic work focuses on cultivating a quiet purity of form with a nod to the strong decisive lines of the industrial machinery she grew up with in her fathers workshop.  Her ceramics bring together the soft elegance of wheel-thrown forms with contrasting stark graphic surfaces. Through her work, Jessica seeks to illuminate the subtlety of human interactions, to highlight the tension between our physical separateness and our emotional connectedness.
