Liz Quackenbush

My love of the earth and all its bounty becomes decoration on the surfaces of my pots. I hope my work reminds people to take a closer look at their surroundings and to appreciate the beauty served up by the earth as it makes its unending diurnal rounds.

During The Flower City Pottery Sale 2016, which takes place annually in Rochester, NY over Columbus Day weekend, I was interviewed by Ben Carter the man behind the Tales of The Red Clay Rambler. There is no doubt, Ben is a gifted interviewer. I just finished listening to my podcast, which was recently posted, and I feel as if the conversation truly captures what is important to me as a teacher and an artist.

I am about to embark on a 6 week adventure to the A.I.R.Vallauris, a ceramics artist residency in Vallauris, France, for the month of February. After that I will be going to Barcelona to see the Antoni Gaudi architecture. I am so excited to experience these cultures so rich with food, ceramics, and art!
