Measurements: 5.80" Using the clay as a canvas, Colleen hand paints richly layered polychrome patterns with porcelain slip, under glaze and wax. Colleen has always loved painting, and she especially likes the grit and rigor of clay. She studied both in college and earned an MFA from Alfred University in 1998. Her first hand-painted pots were crafted purely to delight her son and daughter, their cheerful whimsis being pink and elegant, dancing bears and dinosaurs.
