Ceramics by Kat Habib

My ceramic work draws inspiration from nature, collaboration, and the wood firing process. I am a hand builder, meaning I use coils, slabs, and pinching as my construction method, not touching the pottery wheel at all. This method of working frees me up for exploring different shapes and volumes, often thinking back to my floral design work as I shape a piece. Wood firing is my preferred firing method as the duration of each firing (4-7 days) allows for natural glazing through deep crystalline development on the clay surface with ash build up; the fire and ash seeming to be collaborators in creating the final pieces. I find beauty in the asymmetry and variations of wood-fired surfaces and hand-built forms. For videos and explanation of my process, please visit my website.

Florals by Jen Cable

I work with flowers, foliage, and natural materials to create florals and living green works evocative of the seasons and natural surroundings. Living in the Blue Ridge Mountains for the last 20 years, I find daily inspiration from its natural beauty in all its forms, colors, and views. The mountains, wildflowers, fields, forests, gardens, farms and their respective seasons are all collective resources from which I draw to create my work and designs. I believe in the practice of using and sourcing in-season local and regional materials and goods to create my floral and green works. This is an essential facet of my work, as it highlights the importance of our surroundings and an everchanging environment that blooms, grows, yields and provides the materials that are the foundation of my creative work.
