Ginny has been involved in clay for over 45 years. She quit law school to take time out for a new baby, dropped into a local center clay class and never went back for the legal career. After some advanced ceramics classes at the Evanston Art Center, she pursued a living as a production potter for 10 years. Following a hiatus to get an MBA and a stint in the corporate world, she is back working at a more individualized pace without the pressure of production work.
Ginny joined the Colorado Potters Guild in 2001, soon after getting back into clay. Being new to the Colorado clay scene at that time, the guild offered the opportunity to work with a group of dedicated clay artists and to be part of a greater ceramic community. As most guild members have discovered, being part of this group easily morphs into family and interaction with each other is both a continued education and a nurturing.
Since restarting in clay, Ginny has branched into a more “one of a kind” path. She divides her work between alternative firing techniques using her raku kiln and traditional high fired functional ware. She likes strong color and finds that spraying glazes in multiple layers allows for a more complex surface.
Ginny is inspired by more that other ceramicist’s work – a recent trip to the national parks in Utah was the catalyst for line drawings on her black and white raku ware.
