Rebecca Gerendasy Clay Art
Portland metro, Oregon
I’m one of those people who have been creating art their entire life. In childhood I preferred painting and drawing to playing tag outside on a sunny day. After a rainfall, I would be in the mud making cups and bowls, then leave them to bake in the sun. So it was natural I majored in art with a focus on clay—hand-building, not throwing on a wheel. After graduation my path led me to a career in video, but I continued working in ceramics in my spare time, until I was able to return to it full-time a few years ago. Clay has always been at the center of my creative expression.
I roll out slabs, pinch pots, roll coils, hollow out solid-made forms, and pull these together into an object. Sometimes it is useful; other times it is purely for the sake of beauty or brings one joy - both are important functions! I continue to express my love of color through these objects and I hope they will brighten your day.
