    Something is fascinating and exciting for me to create an object out of a mound of earth that can be used and enjoyed for generations. I love the accessibility of ceramics, the diversity of clay, and the infinite possibilities it presents. I'm passionate about making wares that all can enjoy and how they can play a small role in someone's daily life. I love the possibilities of clay and how it humbles me; I'm continuously inspired to learn and grow as an artist. There is a beautiful balance between creativity, technique, skill, chemistry, and chance, unique to ceramics. It's a practice of mindfulness, relinquishing control, and learning to let go. Clay has a life of its own, the dance between nature and elements; earth, air, water, and fire magically coincide to create objects of beauty and utility; it has shaped civilizations, and I love it!

    I have been enchanted with clay since I was 13 years old. It has awarded me invaluable life experiences, has taken me to different parts of the world, given me a sense of belonging and community, and shaped me as a person, wife, professional, friend, and parent. I've been fortunate to have worked under talented artists in the USA, England, and Costa Rica. My journey has led me on many twists and turns but has always brought me back to the clay. As a psychotherapist and ceramic artist, I know the healing power of clay, its methodical nature, and the mindful moments it creates. It fills my mug with joy, inspiration, creativity, a healthy dose of problem-solving, and some disappointments too! I have a home studio and am an active member of Castle Clay.

    I love clay in all its infinite possibilities, textures and colors. I love looking at the work of all potters and sensing their hands and voices, past and present. I love shaping an amorphous lump of clay into a new form, treasuring both the acts of creation and organization. A self-trained potter, I spent ten years exploring clay avenues from raku to porcelain, from sculpture to mugs. At this time I am firmly settled into the life of a functional potter, working in high fired stoneware.

    I get inspiration from the vibrant forms and hues of Colorado’s mountains and all the dry land country of the west. These I love, and this is reflected in my work. I use strongly contrasting glazes to achieve a lively, colorful effect. I want my pottery to look and feel good and to provide pleasure and grace to everyday life.

    My work life is divided pretty evenly between production in my home studio and glazing and high-firing at Castle Clay Studio in Denver. This division provides a good mix of solitude and contact with other clay artists.

    I reside with my family and cat in Littleton, Colorado.

    I have an MFA from East Carolina University and a BFA from Ohio State University. My love affair with art started in High School. Almost all of my work experience has been related to art: picture framer, cabinet maker, production potter, teacher. This variety of art related work, the desire to continue to learn, and the ability to "think outside the box," has allowed me to be well versed in many ceramic techniques.

    My current work includes hand-built and wheel-thrown pieces and the continual search for the "perfect" finishing technique.

    Lynn enjoys creating things and has always had a craft project going, even at a very young age. Her family went from suburbia to a small farm, to owning and operating an ice cream store, and then running a newspaper in New England. Lynn discovered clay during her junior year of college while out carousing one evening; throwing her first pot on a kick wheel with clay from a slop bucket. She was hooked. Before graduating with a BS in Business Administration she was able to enroll in two ceramics classes. Wanting to learn more, she became a potter's apprentice for three years at Santa Fe Pottery in Denver, Colorado. She joined Castle Clay, a pottery co-op, in Denver in 1990 where she honed her skills and  developed an eye for aesthetics. About 6 years ago, Lynn started teaching, discovering much to her delight just how much she loved sharing the joy of pottery with her students. Lynn strives to make beautiful, unique, well crafted pieces that can be used and appreciated every day.

    A potter whose aesthetic is organic and rustic, Patti loves the collaboration with the kiln goddess. She has been working in clay for nearly a decade, starting out as a thrower and soon after discovering the zen of handbuilding. These days she often loves to combine the two and add texture to her pieces.  

    "Making mud functional" is how she often describes what she does - preferring to make art that people can interact with in their everyday lives. She is inspired by nature where colors are rarely uniform and things are almost never perfectly symmetrical.

    In addition to being a ceramicist, she is a theater professional who works as an actor, director, and playwright. It's that background that gives her a love for pottery that looks like it has a story to tell.

    Please contact Patti for inquiries about purchasing her work.

    Several years ago I visited a contemporary Japanese porcelain exhibit entitled "Quiet Clarity." That concept holds special meaning for me, as it communicates what I want to express through my artwork. It represents harmony between the physical materials, critical thinking and inner contemplation.

    As I straddle the fence between sculptural and functional objects, my emphasis is on form and gesture. I use thrown and hand-built components to create compositions that, while they evoke simplicity and refinement, belie underlying complexity and depth.

    Form is of utmost importance. I hope that others feel and see that my work is made with thoughtfulness and reflection, that it is expressive and enduring, and that layers and overtones are revealed over time.
