FUNCTIONAL POTTERY

Shana makes her pottery using hand-building techniques, such as pinching, coiling, and slab-building. Without using the wheel, Shana creates a variety of unique forms, including everything from bowls and mugs, to teapots, large vessels, and clay instruments. She often decorates the surface by imprinting natural objects, such as leaves, ferns, evergreens and tree bark into the clay. By incorporating these designs into her work, Shana shares her love and respect for the natural world.
