Bluegill Pottery, Vicki Gill • Lowell, NC • Stoneware & Porcelain

Vicki established Bluegill Pottery in 1997. Her forte is thrown and handbuilt stoneware and porcelain clay. ach piece is individually crafted by the artist using handbuilding or the potter's wheel.

Firing takes place in oxidation and, on occasion, in an atmospheric kiln.

The tactile impression is as important to her as the visual impression, so carving and texturing methods form a common thread throughout the body of work. Textures are carved or impressed with natural organic patterns and designs such as leaves, fish, etc.

 

A desire to use and master techniques, such as carving and development of rich surface color and texture was influenced by Eastern pottery.

Everyday use of handmade work was another important part of the Eastern tradition that caught Vicki Gill’s attention.
