and handcrafted in Vermont
by Deborah Moore Van Ness.
My basic desire in creating pottery is
to blend comfortable elegance with a flair for fun, contemporary styling.
My work is accented with whimsical slip decoration which adds visual and
textural interest. I strive to maintain an animated quality in my work which
alludes to movement - an integral part of working on the potter's wheel.
The earth tone slip colors are sealed
in a lead free glaze resulting in pots which are perfect for everyday use.
I fully intend for my work to be used with enjoyment, and see this as the
culmination of the making process.
