"A flower smaller than my thumbnail contains design elements that can keep me going for months. Bringing these qualities to the attention of others is what I'm thinking about as I create my pots."
The turned edge of a flower petal. The ridges of a poppy seed pod. The vein structure of a leaf. Details like these inspire Whitney Smith. In a style evoking early 20th-century Arts & Crafts pottery, her ceramic pieces capture the beauty and function inherent in nature.
She throws each piece on the wheel, then carves and scrapes the surface for effect. When she wants to make a raised design, she draws on the pot with an eyedropper filled with slip, a technique called slip trailing.» View the full artist page of Whitney Smith
