LisaPedolskiIntroducing our March Pots for Membership Artists!

Each month, Studio Potter features a small selection of artists and their work, which is available for sale in our online store for thirty days only. In exchange for the sale of their piece, the artist (or a chosen beneficiary) will receive a one-year free membership to the journal. 


Here are this month's participants: 

Lisa Pedolsky

Lisa Pedolsky is a studio artist working in Southwest Colorado.

Images and articles about Lisa’s work have appeared in numerous publications including Studio Potter, Pottery Making Illustrated and Lark Books’ 500 Vases. Her work appears frequently in national juried and invitational exhibitions and she is represented by galleries across the country. 

While the works I create are recognizable - a box, a bottle, a bowl - they are intended to evoke a deeper response, whether by revealing my sources of inspiration, offering an opportunity for aesthetic contemplation, or providing the deep satisfaction that comes from interacting with thoughtfully crafted objects.

Brian GiniewskiBrianGiniewski

Brian Giniewski is a potter and designer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His simple and restrained forms serve as vehicles for indulgent color and dramatic surfaces that exploit the fluid nature of glaze.  Brian received his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2009 and a BFA from Millersville University in 2006. He has previously taught at the Nova Scotia College of Art + Design, Penn State University, Arcadia University, and was a Windgate Fellow at the Herron School of Art + Design.

Evan Cornish-KeefeEvanCornishKeefe

Evan has been working in clay for almost ten years. He received his BFA from Alfred University in 2013 before moving to Asheville, North Carolina to be a part of one of the biggest clay clubs of the South. He is now working at Odyssey Center for Ceramic Arts as well as for The Bright Angle design collective and maker space under Nick Moen. 

His own work features crystalline glazes and dendritic slip techniques, which he uses to create decorative surface formations that imitate naturally occurring chemical reactions in nature.

Meghan FlynnMeghanFlynn

Meghan fell in love with clay while at the University of North Carolina at Asheville. After graduation in 2008, she moved back to her hometown in Maine. There she dabbled in clay for a couple of years until connecting with Jody Johnstone and joining her wood-firing crew.  In 2015, she began renting her current studio space, which she shares with her friend and fellow potter Ariela Kuh of ANK Ceramics. 

The rhythm of wood-firing was a welcome challenge and inspired me to take my practice more seriously. In the spring and fall, I participate in Jody's wood-firing. I enjoy the contrast of the different types of firing, and the way that the wood-firing coincides with the seasons. Like all things with clay, I love the diversity and seemingly limitless potential of the material. 

I draw inspiration from the rhythms of daily life, the surrounding plants, animals, hills, forests, and the ocean.  When not in the studio, I tend a large vegetable garden, raise chickens and pigs, farm oysters in the bay and work at two local restaurants.
