About the Artists: 

Liz de Beer offers a unique vision through her work that fuses elements of Africa and the West Coast. Her footprints can be traced back to Africa where she grew up and mastered the fine art of pottery.  

Elaine Futterman and Mike Allegretti of Creek Clayworks use salt firing. They put salt into their gas kiln and the sodium combines with silica in the clay to form glaze, a method that originated in Germany in the 1700s. There are often some surprises when they open the kiln to see what patterns the salt has made on the pots. The process produces luminous, almost alchemical surfaces.  

Bev and Ray Niebergall will display their clay creations that range from functional ware to decorative and sculptural works, while Jack Ploesser exhibits his deep knowledge of copper red and ash glazes and the curious ways they interact with each other.
