Naomi Lindenfeld demos during the BWA Open Studio Tour
My dialogue with clay is articulated in the 6,000 year old tradition of the functional vessel. I like the idea of my pieces becoming part of peoples’ everyday lives.
I am influenced by my environment, the Green Mountains of Vermont. This is reflective in the suggestive landscapes and colorful earth-tone glaze overlays I use to decorate my pots. A recent trip to Alaska has further opened more possibilities to colors, forms, and textures.
I fire in a wood kiln because the process most closely relates to the individual pieces. The fire goes through each piece in the chamber and tells a surprising story every time.
