About the Artist

"Many happy hours of my childhood were spent sitting at the table enjoying delicious meals with a loving, close-knit, extended family. These wonderful memories and my love of delicious, home-cooked food informs my passion for designing and creating functional pottery. My glaze palette is inspired by my love of the outdoors; cool greens and blues, warm sand, and vibrant turquoise. The textured patterns I often add to my pots come from my love for historic textile patterns from around the world. My pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed; to make every day beautiful."

Bowl by Linda Chidsey -

Size: 12" l x 13" w x 2" h

Technique: Hand-built Raku fired Sculpture

 

About the Artist

"After a 30-year career in information technology, my focus, time, and energy have taken a major shift to creating vibrant Raku sculptures, wearable jewelry art, and unusual copper creations. I take every opportunity to explore new concepts and ideas to create one-of-a-kind artwork. From a relatively simple palette of raw materials consisting of clay, metal, and natural stones, I strive to create unique jewelry, pottery, and sculptural forms. I often combine more than one of my media in a single piece of sculpture. All of my pottery is hand-molded and utilizes the Raku firing process that provides unpredictable smoke patterns and spectacular metallic and lustrous effects."

Bowl by Joshua Rhodes -

Size: 8.25"d x 5"h

Technique: Wheel-thrown by Jump Into Art potter, Tim Bednar and painted by Joshua Rhodes

 

About the Artist

Frisco TX-based artist, Joshua Rhodes, has been creating things since he was a child. Always drawing and painting, he is perpetually trying new techniques and mediums to challenge himself to learn more and not grow comfortable. Even creating his art business's name ‘Limnotic Art’ from a laboratory he used to work in after college.

Josh’s main medium is oil paint, with his work displayed in a handful of galleries in North Texas, and, with some pieces being published in September 2021, he continues to push what he believes he can do with his art. For him, art is a very personal and organic thing, breathing, growing, and evolving.

Another important medium is pen and ink, creating designs and drawings that, as he describes, “seek nothing, and emulate nothing”.  UtiliIizing spray paint also, he loves to synthesize an organic theme into the technological aesthetic of the present and future world.
