#8 Knowles Studio

I was introduced to pottery in 2003 by taking a class at the Olympia Community Center. I figured one class would be fun, I had no intention of pottery becoming such a big part of my life. I now have my own studio and spend as much time there as I can.
I settled on slab construction; I love the variety of shapes that are possible. You don’t need much equipment for slab building; a good quality rolling pin, some slats with accurate thickness for rolling slabs to the desired thickness, and miscellaneous tools. For me stamps are essential too. I have a mighty large collection of stamps; hand carved wood stamps, embossed rolling pins, and small roller stamps. I love how one shape will lead to another, I never run out of ideas. When I am working on a new shape, I often make several with varying curves, sizes and proportions of width, depth and height. I feel so lucky to be able to make my creations and I hope that they bring to you some of the joy I have had in making them.
