Teresa Taylor is a NH-based ceramicist. Her work is inspired by natural and botanical forms, and she works both sculpturally and functionally. Often including pattern and drawn elements, the pieces are painterly with lively surfaces.
The artist exhibits across NH and the Northeast and has participated in a number of public art projects. Taylor is a juried member of the NH League of Craftsmen, the NH Potter’s Guild and a participating Artist-in-Education though the NH State Council for the Arts. She is also president of the planning committee for North Country Studio works. Her studio and shop, Salty Dog Pottery, was established in 1973 in Barnstead, NH in the Lakes Region. The demo will be live from her studio and she will be showing her process for wheel throwing and incorporating hand-built elements.
Nature influences the forms and surfaces of my work. Clay is a material that encourages me to create sculptural and functional pieces. As a studio potter, I attempt to create beautiful, function pottery for everyday use. I hope to maintain an energetic human spirit within my handmade pottery, along with providing pleasure, while using these objects during daily rituals.
