Judi Ayal – Georgia Potter
Bowls, baskets, birdhouses – and more! On sale at the Little Five Points location.
I love making pots. I’ve worked out of the Callanwolde Pottery Studio going back to 1978 where my fellow potters and teachers have influenced my love of creating pots on the wheel – strong, honest, functional pots.
I’m fascinated by the marks my hands and fingers leave in the wet clay and how those marks are then preserved after the work is fired.
I explore different clays – porcelain, stoneware and Georgia red clay – as well as different methods of firing.
All my tableware is microwave and dishwasher safe – it’s oven safe, too – if you start with a cold oven – it just can’t take thermal shock.
I hope you love using my pots, as much as I like making them!
Paintings By Sebastian Molina
I am from the small town of Santuario, in Columbia, South America. I have loved art since I was a child. I admired acrylic paintings of realism as a child and that led me to study fine art as I grew up. When I moved to the United States, I began to break the rules with my paintings and discovered my interest in modern art. So I began my study of modern art. I took classes at Chastain Park and studied under Sylvia Cross, who has been my mentor and teacher for more then 14 years. Over the years I have learned and gained a lot of experience. I have enjoyed exploring the natural environments of objects and circumstances. I see my art as one long exercise to build up surfaces that are important to me. During the last two years, I have showed my paintings in different galleries around Georgia, like the Sycamore Gallery in Decatur, Atlanta Artists Center in Buckhead, Carrollton Cultural Arts Center, in which I was awarded two ribbons of artistic merit and the Defoor Center in Atlanta.
