Carole Smith

Artist Bio :

I did a ceramics degree and postgraduate degree many years ago in London. Since moving to Texas 20 years ago I got back into ceramics when I did my residency at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. I make mostly functional ceramics, I’m interested in vintage glazes, dripping and layering. I work with earthenware and mid range clay to make vases, planters and dishes. I love experimenting with making glazes and creating special textures and finishes.

Sabine Triplett

Artist Bio:

I learned to throw at the The Art School at Old Church in Demarest (https://www.tasoc.org/) in Demarest, NJ over 15 years ago. I loved it. However, it wasn’t until I moved to Houston a few years ago, and started to take classes at the Glassell School that I found it was my obsession. My work is mostly functional, created on the wheel, and usually high fired. I am always exploring new shapes, sizes, clay bodies, firing techniques. Influences include other artists and students, instagram potters, and museum visits. Currently, I am thinking a lot about the mid-century potters of the Bauhaus workshops - simplicity and elegance in form and function.

Tomiko Wilkerson

Artist Bio:

While attending U of H, I discovered clay. After several semesters of ceramics with Huey Beckham, I loved it! I earned my teaching degree, started working, a family, clay was on hold. I retired 3ish years ago. First thing I did was enroll in ceramics at Glassell. I am enjoying being a maker again. I love functional items that are visually interesting, thus my focus. I incorporate a lot of texture in my hand-built pieces, and my choice of clay has been stoneware fired in reduction. I love the depth of surface, the toasty color of the clay, and the way the glaze breaks over the textured surface. This summer I attended workshops taught by some very talented North Carolina potters. I am experimenting with techniques learned using low fire red earthenware, slips, terra sigillata, and transfers of my creation on hand-built items. I love both methods of making, and plan to continue creating functional items, in stoneware, and sometimes in earthenware.
