Gretchen Olson Arts Things I make from clay: bowls, mugs, plates, tumblers, jewelry pendants, magnets, tiles and sculptures. I use a lot of bright colors in my work.

I am an independent artist happily creating in my home studio. I have some items for sale in my Etsy shop (see link). I participate in occasional art shows. You can always contact me and visit my studio. I love visitors! I am happy to discuss special orders.

This iteration of my explorations in porcelain celebrates color!

This thing was just an experiment sitting on my shelf…. Until I was challenged to come up with a luminary. Put lights inside a thin porcelain experiment and voila. Challenge complete.

One of my goals for opening .artist.collective is to use clay to help people exercise their creative muscles. “Lack of creativity” Is learned; it is not inherent as so many are led to believe.
Join art educator .wip and I at this workshop meant to coax your creativity to come out to play.

Trying out a really fun handbuilding technique that I learned from
Started with a wheel thrown press mold and used haphazard pieces of a slab to build the bowl. Finished with a red underglaze wiping to bring out the texture and give a hint to the process.

Mark thank you so much for sharing your process!! And ps, awesome article!! 🤩🤩
