MEET THE ARTISTS
Janet Williams has been making pottery in Santa Fe, New Mexico for more than 40 years. Her work is inspired by the landscape and culture of the Southwest. In addition to the showroom at Paseo Pottery, Janet's pottery is featured at the Museum of New Mexico Gift Shop in Santa Fe, Mountain Arts in Ruidoso NM, Esteban's in Sedona AZ, Friends and Neighbors in Austin TX, Reliquary in San Francisco CA, The Tacoma Art Museum in Tacoma WA, and Mociun in Brooklyn NY.
Each piece is wheel-thrown and glazed by hand, resulting in beautiful variations in the glaze patterns. No two pieces of pottery are identical. The bottom of each pot is signed by the artist.

Ron finds the inspiration for his pottery -- mostly bowls -- in the esthetics of Asian ceramics, adhering to a simplicity of form and glazing techniques that echo the traditions of China, Korea, and Japan.Using both red and white clays, he works in high-fired stoneware that is food-safe and fine in the dishwasher. Each piece is individually wheel-thrown and hand-glazed.

It was while earning a B.S. in art education that Mike got his first taste of working in clay. Graduation was soon followed by an apprenticeship which led to working as a full-time potter. In the past few years Mike has devoted part of his time to teaching ceramics to both high school and adult students.
