About the Artist

At the wheel-1

Judith Lerner Taylor became fascinated with pottery as a teenager, but it wasn’t until she completed one career as a dancer (Soloist with American Ballet Theater), and then a second career as an executive in pharmaceutical marketing, that she found her way back to her enduring passion: ceramic arts. In recognition of her deep-rooted connection to dance, she has aptly named her pottery business EarthDances®.

Judith learned the fundamentals of her craft from several master potters in the Northeastern United States and continues to develop her technique with the same discipline she applied to ballet. Movement remains a fundamental element throughout her ceramic repertoire, both in the graceful dimensions of her wheel-thrown pieces as well as in the unique designs and colors of her glazes.

Her work is now on exhibit in galleries in New Jersey and Connecticut, and she participates in several art exhibits and craft shows annually, including the shows of the Potters' Guild of New Jersey, an organization of which she was
President (2004-2006).

In 2015, she added ceramic jewelry to her pottery repertoire, which can be viewed and purchased directly from this website.

Artist's Statement

Joy As one of our oldest and most enduring creative endeavors, pottery connects us with the earliest traditions of our civilization and culture. Dance also links us with our past, as well as connects us with each other through its ability to convey a vast range of expression. I strive to infuse movement into all my ceramic pieces, so that my pottery instills in others the sense of joy, exhilaration, and lightness of dancing. Arabesque
