Hand-Painted Pottery

Gallery One features contemporary pottery that has been painted with underglaze and then coated with a clear, water-tight, food-safe glaze before the final kiln firing to about 2,000 degrees. The decorations feature leaves, flowers, and a variety of bird species, with hummingbirds appearing most predominantly.
The images below are representative of the one-of-a-kind items created by EarthDances Pottery. Because of their dimensions, they have special shipping requirements. Please Contact Us for information on cost and availability of these items.
For more traditional glazework, see Gallery Two.

Bowls and Birds

The avian spirit permeates the soul of any dancer. The music of Swan Lake is encoded in her DNA, and the image of Firebird’s speed and lightness remains a goal throughout her dancing career.

No wonder birds emerged very early in the repetroir of EarthDances Pottery and remain an integral element in the design.

Pitchers

Pitcher With an Attitude
11 inches tall

From a design standpoint, a pitcher is a vase with a spout and handle. But these additional features give the traditional vase new life, turning it into a vessel that can provide practical function at mealtime, as well as offer a whimsical opportunity for expression.

Along with being suited for flower arrangements, pitchers have an appealing symbolism. An entity that can receive, hold, and give forth has a pivotal role in the symbolic dance of life. Of all the EarthDances vessels, perhaps the humble pitcher offers the greatest versatility.

Early in the life of EarthDances Pottery, vases began to appear with human faces carved into the walls, and the style was called “Woman Emerging.”

Faces became a popular signature theme, which continues to flourish in a variety of forms.
