Artist Profile

Gig Lavery

Medium: Clay

Description:  Small clay animal sculptures

The animal clay sculptures, talking sticks and scenes are my trademark as a clay artist. Working in earthenware and stoneware, layers of oxides are applied to the surfaces of my pieces to evoke the feeling of an ancient time. Small tree roots and branches are used in combination with clay to create some of my figures. I have always been drawn to the pottery of primitive cultures with i's relationship to the animal world and its simplicity of design. A strong influence in my work comes from my love of animals. My work has been shown and sold in the New England area and the South over the past 27 years. I work out of my home studio in Windsor, CT.
