Cottonwood Creek Pottery

Quality Handmade Pottery by Elizabeth Gebert

Handmade in Texas With Love!

My working in clay brings endless possibilities as an artist. I find it to be a rich medium, responsive to the touch and quite forgiving at times. Clay has always drawn me in; even as a child I had a desire to turn clay into something meaningful.

As an adult, historical aspects of handmade pottery captured my attention. My work was influenced by these utilitarian pieces as reflected in my work as Johnson House Pottery from in Chuckey, Tennessee from 1989 to 2005.

I find myself changing the surfaces of my work as I continue to grow as an artist.

I am also influenced by the world around me, as patterns and textures abound. These influences have coaxed me to turn smooth surfaces into hand-carved textures and patterns. I find it natural to take simple surfaces to complex with embellishments. I have gone from single glazes to colorful combinations of blended glazes and stains, all the while keeping the pieces functional.

I am frequently experimenting with new clay and processes. The materials I use are various stoneware, terracotta, porcelain and raku clays. I am inquisitive and always thinking of new processes; asking myself, “If this, then how would that work?” I use processes such as slip trailing wet clay and I am always trying an array of new tools for new results.

In April, we will be introducing new lines of functional and sculptural work that reflects new interior design trends for 2020-2021.
