Giveaway!!!!



I'm seeing stars! Oh wait, that is just our newest giveaway, hehe. Okay that was super corny but I couldn't help myself. This weeks featured artist is the oh so sweet Deidre or Deidreart. As you can see she makes some wonderful and awesome items out of clay. She has a fun disposition that shows through her work and the titles of her pieces are often inspired by music. Check out her store, you'll find a mix of hand shaped and hand thrown pottery, it's pretty cool!

Here are my favorites!






Here is a little bit about 

Deidreart.


Name is Deidre, I am 23 years old from Saint Louis Missouri. I love colour, dogs (including my own BuddyGirl), Rob Thomas, music, ceramics, reading, and Chinese food among other things. Art has always been a part of my life more specifically music and visual art. I went too some art related schools both in middle and high school in the Saint Louis area. It was in high school that my passion for ceramics arts began. My sophmore year I took my first real ceramics class and I never left it! I've gone through lots of different stages in my art but a lot of things don't change. I love to play with ideas of unbalanced and often combined forms, carving/sgrafitto, and nature. I think that show up a lot in my body of work. Most recently I have been doing some more handbuilding, like the bowl in this giveaway, but throwing is totally where my head and hands are always at. My passion for music shows up in my work alot as well. I name many of my pieces after song lyrics that the piece reminds me of. My etsy shop started in September 2009, so I am fairly new but loving it so far. I also plan on getting involved in some markets this summer in the Saint Louis area. I also try to keep up with a blog where I post works in progress. 

Also find Deidre here.
