"The exciting part is the assembly; I just let the magic happen."
Ceramic artist Rhonda Cearlock is inspired by the patchwork of fields, the change of seasons, the rising and setting of the sun, and the textures of landscapes. Working in clay for over 30 years, she uses these influences to guide her richly organic contemporary work. Her studio is nestled in the woods and overlooks a lake.
Cearlock's work is made up of many clay elements. The pieces are extruded, hand-built, slumped and press molded. Chosen pieces are then textured using hand-built clay stamps and found objects with interesting patterns. The pieces are fired in a homemade kiln or pit-fired, then are assembled and painted with acrylic paint.
Rhonda studied ceramics at Eastern Illinois University. She has an BA and an MA in Ceramics and Sculpture.
It takes time to make great artwork. Most of the pieces we offer are created one at a time by the artist, and shipped directly to you from the artist’s studio.
