Rebecca Arthur is a ceramics artist in Corvallis, Oregon. She has degrees in art and engineering. While pursuing her art degree, she had the opportunity to explore many media including ceramics and painting. She was fascinated by the abstract realism of Georgia O’Keeffe and incorporated O'Keeffe's motto "Simplify, Eliminate, Emphasize" into her own work.
A majority of Rebecca’s ceramic work features Traditional Western Raku, Horsehair, Obvara and other low-fire raku techniques where she is able to embrace the randomness and immediacy of a fast, lower temperature firing. Of the process she says “using these methods, the vessels become the canvases upon which I paint with fire and smoke.”
