Angela Neiwert

Clay is my primary medium and I have been obsessed with this wonderful material of the Earth since 1991. I love the process of transforming the clay into hand-coiled, slab-built sculpture and making vessels thrown on the wheel. My sculptures often contain multiple segments that require an installation experience. There is a storytelling quality that accompanies each sculpture and each design on my pots.  I am highly influenced by my surrounding such as the birds of the Boise River and wildlife in my own backyard.  Using hand made art is important in daily life. Shared meals in thoughtful vessels build family, community and fuel body and soul.
