- March 3, 1893 – March 12, 1998
- Born in San Francisco, California. Studied art and theater in a prestigious academy in Paris and continued acting in New York at the onset of WWI. Wood was involved in the Avant-Garde movement in the United States.
- I like the type of glazes Wood used for her pieces. The glazes she chose really helped accentuate the shape and design of her artwork.
- In the future, I will use Wood’s artwork as inspiration to use glazes meaningfully in my pieces to highlight certain parts of it.
- Born February 16, 1924 in Illinois
- Heavily influenced by traditional Japanese and Korean ceramics. Credited with bringing the Mingei Japanese style of pottery to Minnesota. Described his goal as the making of “everyday” pots.
- I am inspired by the simple and clean designs MacKenzie employs in his artwork. His artwork looks very natural and not extremely excessive with the designs and colors he uses.
- In my future artwork, I want to create simple and effective pieces that do not contain too many intricate details.
- A Vermont-based studio potter and educator.
- Has consistently exhibited across the country for over twenty years.
- What I find most interesting about Peltz’s work is that she builds her pieces on basic shapes, and then adds different layers, textures, and patterns to them.
- For my future ceramic pieces, I will try to begin with a simple design and further add detail after the basic shape has been created.
