“I enjoy making ceramics pottery.” I am captivated by the creative process. Taking pure clay and fashioning it into colorful, functional pieces is exciting. These artistic and useful pieces, ART WARES, are designed to be displayed and fun to use. I use shapes and designs inspired by ancient potters as well as contemporary artists. As a life long hiker, I get inspired by the textures and colors found in nature. Each of my pieces is individually shaped or wheel-thrown, creating a unique and original hand thrown work, (there is no other like it), which makes each piece unique. I hope the owners of my pottery enjoy Kreuser Ceramics Pottery as much as I enjoyed creating it.”
