Elaine Moore - Functional & Sculptural Ceramics
Elaine Moore is inspired by nature, which guides her in creating both functional ceramics and sculptural pieces. She works exclusively as a hand-builder, preferring the slow, exploratory process of developing an idea while she forms and shapes the clay. She uses slab, coil, pinch, and molding techniques, and fires most of her work in the low-fire temperature range, which allows the use of glazes that yield bright, vivid colors. Elaine's work includes whimsical, sculptural, garden pieces in both earthenware and stoneware, easily at home in house or garden. Contact: Elaine Moore firstname.lastname@example.org 425-765-1875
Linda Thorson - Cast Stone Garden Sculpture/Architectural Detailing
ConInspired by her background in history, art history, horticulture, and travel, Linda's original sculptures are created mostly from clay, with occasional use of paper, wood or glass. While she usually begins with conceptual drawings, each one evolves as she creates it in a head/heart/hand process. She has developed a specialized, high-strength concrete mixture for her casting, which allows for very fine detailing. After fabrication of a silicone mold, a piece is cast and trimmed. She also creates her own finishes, usually beginning with an integral color, with oxides and pigments layered and burnished after casting. The pieces are then sealed and hand buffed, to bring out their detail and luster. They weather beautifully outdoors. Linda welcomes special orders and is happy to create any piece in your choice of finish. Contact: LindaThorsonDesign.com.
