Isn't it beautiful how with the same medium (such as clay, or paint) artists can make work that is so unmistakably unique and true to themselves? We never tire of finding new work and new artists. Here is one of our NCCAF Artists, @junopottery
mixing clay and weaving together to create something new and beautiful.

A little close-up.⠀
The idea was to make gnarly, creaky looking hands. ⠀
The crown is supposed to look like rusted cast iron. Not sure how well that worked out... At least it contrasts with the skin so it’s clearly a different material, which is good :)
Not every piece of pottery is going to be a smashing success, but that doesn't mean you can't have a little fun with it. 🔨 #artinsider
Black bowl! Perfect size for a small furry companion. I learned a ton from this series of pet bowls. The hardest thing wasn't throwing, but ensuring the shape stayed circular when moving it from the wheel and that the bottom didn't crack.
Also super difficult to take a photograph, had to photoshop out my huge face in the reflection. You can still see where the lightbox ends haha.

): This piece titled "Upside Down" addresses my own personal struggle with the desire to be a mother and the desire to sustain my career as a professional artist. I know that doing both is possible but I am not sure that my career is in the right place to take the leap into motherhood. This is an issue that I know that many other female artists deal with as well. The figure is in a free fall through time. Almost as if she is looking to the past wondering where the time has gone. The soft "baby" pink is a nod to femininity and fertility and almost emits that "motherly" glow. #ceramicsmonthly #emergingartist #ceramics #ceramicsculpture #sculpture #clay #jamiebatesslone
One thing I love about working in a home studio is the ability to move my work around- building cups in the studio in the morning, smoothing out plaster moulds by the garden in the afternoon, finishing pots in front of the tv after the kids are asleep.
It allows me to make work while I still give my family some of my time- which is apparently something they can’t quite get enough of! ( I got my hair done yesterday and you would have thought I was gone for an eternity when I got back- they were so over the top excited! I was only away from them for four and a half hours!!🤣) #momartist #balance #moulds
