Ceramics &  Glass Art by Guild Members   Ceramics By Guild Members

Working with clay, glazes, and varying intense degrees of heat, ceramic artists create both functional and purely aesthetic works of fine craft. Their medium keeps them grounded in the earth and in the long history of the potter’s craft.

I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT CLAY! I have played in clay for 40 years, trying out many of the techniques clay offers. While doing this I have taught art, language arts, special education - all of which brought much satisfaction, but clay has always been my joy.

I make both utilitarian

Stephen Kirkland’s love affair with ceramics started in 1967 when he was 14 years old, and his continuous work making pottery has yielded mastery at his art.

Stephen uses various techniques including pit firing, applying ingenious designs while the clay is on the wheel, and perhaps the


My ceramics came from the influence of my wife, Roxanne Hunnicutt, a potter. While I can't use a potter's wheel with skill, I make my work from slabs, usually abstractions. My favorite work is totems which usually feature bright colors and geometric shapes. Totems are stacks of pottery pieces

Dana is a ceramic and visual artist who recently moved to Jacksonville Oregon after starting her ceramics career in Northern California. Dana first developed her passion for clay over 15 years ago when she took classes at Sierra College in Rocklin.
For years Dana struggled with glazes feeling that glazes hide the clay rather than celebrate the clay.  When she studied various naked clay techniques under Eduardo Lazo, her journey changed and took her on a decades long exploration of alternative finishes. Dana eventually developed a smoked resist finish.
Dana’s most recent altered and folded ceramic forms are a direct result of her time spent on the Pacific Northwest coast. While clay is her primary medium, Dana secretly aspires to be a painter and recently alcohol inks have fulfilled that desire. For her, the movement of the ink across paper is in keeping with her water theme and resembles the flow of water across sand.
Dana’s work is in private and public collections in the United States and abroad. Her work has won several awards including first place at The Kennedy Gallery 20/20 Show and Elk Grove Art Center’s Annual Ceramics Show, third place winner at Oakwilde Sculpture Ranch 52 artists show, and Placer Arts Membership Juried Art Show. One of the greatest highlights of Dana’s career has been two showings in the highly regarded Pasadena Showcase House in Southern California.
