Rebecca Wind . potter . Syracuse,New York

8op583ezI was born and raised in Syracuse New York and have always had a passion for creating.  As a child I would watch The Martha Stewart Show every morning for craft inspirations,

In May 2014, I graduated  from Wells College with a degree in Psychology and minors in Art and Sociology.  While I enjoyed learning about psychology in the classroom at Wells, I discovered my true life’s passion in the ceramic studio.  I now spend my days creating functional pottery on my potter’s wheel with my hands…and occasionally my feet!

Hodaka Hasebe – Rochester, New York / new work

I was born and grew up in Tokyo, and have lived in Rochester, N.Y. since 1989 when I started potting. I worked as a market researcher and was involved with many products; foods, soft drinks, magazine, camera and so on. I learned the importance of making good products.

Why pottery? A potter, it sounds good, doesn’t it?

I dreamed of being one for a long time. I was once told not touch clay because it attracts people mysteriously, later days of Picasso, for instance. When I married and moved here, my dream was realized with my wife’s warmest support. I have had no formal pottery training except a pottery club during my university days, when I became possessed by the clay.

I love making pottery, especially functional; I call it “Zakki (a bunch of pots)”. My pots are designed to be simple, easy to handle, and go with any kind of foods at a reasonable price for you to use everyday. Japanese use many different kinds of dishes, colors and shapes, to decorate a meal and a table. Next time you cook or serve a meal, please imagine which dish sets off (cheers up) your meal.

Nanette Bergevin – Jordan, New York

Nanette Bergevin works mainly in stoneware but also works in terra cotta.  In her studio, her vessels have a pristine elegance and a wide range of art historical associations.  ” i can’t just crank out bowls for money.  I spend a lot of time which each piece, because my feeling is that I’m making art, and not a line of goods.”
