Visions N Clay
Medium: Functional pottery
Description: Unique pieces of clay created for everyday functional use
My name is Nancy Akell. I am a full time secretary and love to make pottery in my spare time. I started classes over ten years ago at Farmington Valley Art Center in Avon, CT. I am currently at Greenleaf Pottery in South Windsor, CT with my teacher, John Macomber. The clay I use is stoneware and fired in a gas kiln. My pottery is functional, using food-safe glazes, dishwasher safe and also can be used in a microwave or oven. I like to experiment with different decorating techniques such as carving, painting and using stamps for texture. There are endless possibilities in creation of clay pieces. There is so much still to learn! Each of my pieces are unique and made by hand. When creating with clay at the wheel … time just seems to fly by.
