Clay Concepts ~ Pottery by Dolores Thomson



"Creating with clay has been a journey of self discovery. In learning to center the clay, I found a way to center myself. As I explore the variety of forms and learn the complexities of the ceramic process, I find new ways in which to express myself. Nature, as well as Native American and Japanese aesthetics, inspires my designs and the forms I make.
The majority of my work consists of wheel thrown vessels. For me, the vessel is representative of the self, a receptacle for things that matter and need to be kept safe. In ancient times the vessel was a symbol for the Feminine; the giver of life, well being and nourishment.




Clay has taught me to have focus and patience. By its very nature, clay connects us to the earth and I find my awareness of nature heightened. As I continue to create with clay, I continue to create myself." ~ Dolores Thomson
