Featured Artist: MANDY SHOGER ~ Foxtail Pottery
Confluence Gallery welcomes Foxtail Pottery into our gallery gift shop.
Mandy Shoger relocated her Seattle clay studio to the TwispWorks campus earlier this year. Her hand-thrown dinnerware is all crafted on the potter’s wheel in her new Twisp, WA studio. Mandy designs and cuts stencils for each piece of pottery, and applies the stencils to bisque-ware using latex and vinyl resist materials by hand, one-by-one, on each piece. Each piece is dipped or brush-glazed before removing the stencils. All the dinnerware is fired to cone 4-6 in an electric kiln making them both dishwasher and microwave safe.
Mandy’s designs are inspired by travel, historical architecture, nature, old tile books and textiles. Her palette of blues, greens and neutrals creates dinnerware that is both functional and beautiful for every day use at every table.
Mandy Shoger earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Seattle Pacific University in 2001. She has been practicing and producing ceramics since 2005 and marketing her work in various venues since 2012. You can learn more about Foxtail Pottery on her website.
