ACGA ARTIST OF THE MONTH
KAREN WINOGRADE

I have been making pots for over 40 years. I primarily make functional work for kitchen, dining table, garden and flowers. Since 1983 I have been using the firing method of Salt/soda glazing. I love that this presents the natural colors and textures of the various clays, glazed by the sodium vapors in the kiln and accented with the limited use of colored slips and glazes. Each stacking of the kiln and each place in the stacking can create varying results which keeps me excited about opening of each firing. I love to make pots that people use every day.
