Tanna Bennett

Artist statement :

 In 2014, I incorporated working with clay along with my separate painting studio.  I returned to my clay roots after a 20-year painting break and feel comfortable working with this earthy tactile medium

My latest body of work deals with the human form and images from the endless cycle of nature.  I am interested in creating a narrative story of everyday struggles of living and growing as a human. 

In the 1990s, I trained as a classical realist painter in the United States and France.  I studied ceramics at the International Ceramic School in Hungary, Archie Bray and Watershed.

Betsy Evans

Artist statement:

My life is a myriad of styles and effort. At times, it requires some heavy lifting, and at other times, the lightest touch makes all the difference, Sometimes it calls for a serious approach, while at others, my levity and humor, and the smiles and laughter they bring, makes it all worthwhile. All of it is tempered by my passion. My work reflects my approach to life. Each piece requires physical effort to haul large, heavy bags of clay to my studio. A delicate touch is needed to throw each pot. Sculpting necessitates a serious approach, while the whimsical images, textures, lines and colors provide levity. The kiln fires and tempers the final result.

Artist statement:

Irregular Regularity - In nature there is a regularity, pattern, and order that can been seen everywhere, in the leaves of a tree, in the symmetry of faces.  This allows everything to be classified as alike or different.   Biologists use these similarities to classify using species or order.  But, as each classification is alike each one, thing is a unique, different from all the others.  Sheep all look alike while running in a flock across a meadow, but each sheep when compared all have their differences, be it a physical or a way of behaving.   Faces, leaves, shorelines, rocks all have this characteristic.  Fractals 

I am greater than the sum of my parts.

Maria Hernandez

Artist statement:

Maria Hernandez is a ceramicist that was raised in Houston, TX. She is the owner of Sunflower Ceramic Studio and is currently focused on making dinnerware. She received a BFA with a ceramics concentration from Angelo State University in 2017.
Maria believes that it is important to have an object you can turn to for comfort, whether that be a favorite mug or an everyday bowl. By having a minimalistic style, the focus of her pieces becomes the color. Color is a major influence in her work because of how much control it has over a person’s mood.

Artist statement :

I’ve come to clay late in life but am making up for lost time.  I’ve found that clay, unlike some other media, can be both sculptural and functional and has unlimited possibilities for shaping, forming, texturing, painting and glazing.   For me it is about creating a form that compels you to pick it up, examine it and admire it.
