Tasha McKelvey, Ceramics Artist

Richmond, Virginia

Tasha throws on the potter’s wheel or use slabs of clay to hand-build her clay forms. Each piece is glazed by hand and fired in an electric kiln. Tasha’s work has been inspired by the gardens & forests – incorporating birds, flowers & leaves into her designs. She is currently working on combining these motifs inspired by the natural world with geometric and textile inspired designs.

Tasha’s clay work is intended to be useful – this is art that is meant to be touched. In the past everything used in the home was made by hand. Today our homes are filled with stuff stamped out by machines. By seeking seek out handmade art our surroundings become a little more human.
