Olivia Tarricone

Artist Bio:

Olivia Tarricone is an architect by training. She sought out the pottery wheel as an escape from straight lines and a retreat into the organic, rounded forms that emerge from a lump of clay. She fell in love with clay because of the humility it demands, and the connection it creates to the earth and the hands that form it. After living for many years in Philadelphia and working in a community studio, she has transitioned to making work in her own studio space in Houston. She is currently experimenting with how forms can create their own surface decoration as they are dipped into liquid and record an intersection with the liquid plane.

Karina “Aimee" Kudla

Artist Bio :

My name is Karina “Aimee" Kudla. Ceramics has been in my heart since I started taking hand building ceramic classes at a community learning center in 2016. I love designing, creating, and making things with my own hands. Ceramics is always with me and it represents not only how I see things, but who I am.

I have a ceramic studio located in Old Katy, TX, where I teach pottery classes and make handmade ceramic pieces for sale. I attend local art and craft markets and have presence on social media. My passion for ceramics is carried in everything that I do. I knew ceramics was the path that I would take to fulfil my needs in art and the relationship with future customers and students.

I work mostly with mid fire white, red and sometimes black clays. I like trying different types and colors of glazes, however I strive to form a uniform and consistent finish. I plan colors that would work well together taking in consideration how they work on the specific clay undertone.

Wade Woehrmann

Artist Bio:

Me, well I harken from the nearly extinct linage of Woehrmann with few left roaming this earth yet. Having for decades wondered far afield and made my way as a creative, land planner, architectural illustrator and having run the gamut in the digital pixel / vector world of CAD, photoshop, 3D modeling, and animation; I have now set designs on learning learn ceramics and practicing its arts.  The force is strong what that draw to revel in real media once again.

It is hoped that a newly fired whimsical piece might bring a smile, or a handle made just so offer some comfort in the daily use.  I am always open to getting lost in the woods, conversation over coffee about something random or a challenge to make you a mug, bowl, or dish as per your whims if one of mine simply sparks an idea. Let’s have some fun.
