Judy Adams

Artist Bio:

Judy Adams co-owns Foelber Pottery with husband John Foelber. She graduated from Bowling Green University of Ohio with a dual degree in Art Education and a BFA~Ceramics. Judy has been a working potter since 1984 and an art teacher in Houston schools from 1985 to 1993. With John Foelber, she participated in art festivals throughout Texas from 1987 to 1996.

Judy's focus is now on running Foelber gallery, teaching adult pottery classes at Foelber Studio,  and finding time to create her own clay work. Her technical focus is wheel-thrown and altered pieces to create organic shapes that still retain a vessel form. She is interested in movement and the negative space around a piece. After all these years it is still an exciting dance between her hands, the clay, and the kiln firing.

Vera Hashem

Artist Bio:

My love for ceramics emerged only in the last decade, but love of art has always been a major part of my life. Growing up in a remote area in Lebanon, I spent my childhood on hillsides entertaining myself by using natural environment to make art, creating miniature villages using twigs, mud, pebbles, and other flotsam. After immigrating to the US, I decided to pursue science, ending up with a PhD in molecular biology, but I never gave up art, filling up any free time creating something. After my 1st introductory course in ceramics, I was hooked. Turning mud into a mug involves physics, chemistry, and constructional abilities, yet is ultimately controlled by the whims of the kiln gods, … and playing with clay is cheaper than psychotherapy. Currently I have an “eclectic” styling pallet driven by my inclination for experimentation. Most of my pottery is functional, but with some added artistic flair but who knows what direction the muses will take me next.

Dave Thomas

Artist Bio:

I am a semi self- taught ceramic artist who has been attending classes at Foeller Pottery Studio since 2016 and play with clay out of my home studio in Houston TX. 

I draw inspiration for my work from natures pallet, texture, and asymmetrical shapes.  I want the user of my ceramics to make a connection with the piece and to discover something new each time they use, look, or touch it.  

I believe pottery should be enjoyed, touched, seen, and used. In my work I strive to make each piece unique, asking to be examined and touched. I use both ancient pit fire and modern kiln firing techniques to help bring uniqueness to each piece. 

My artistic motto is “I play with dirt”.

Frederick Young

Artist Bio:

I’m a potter who began exploring how to shape clay into functional forms at Foelber’s Studio in Houston, TX. Outside the studio, I continue to learn and develop my skills through workshops, self-study, and experimentation.

I’m inspired by the notion of pottery as vessels to nourish the body and mind.  I strive to create considered pieces that are practical, have visual appeal, and are pleasing to touch—a good weight in the hand, a rim that rests nicely on the lip, a surface that draws the eye and invites handling.

Pottery is an experience; it has the potential to evoke positive feelings for the potter and the person using it.
