Pottery studio, pottery sales, pottery classes, pottery lessons and custom orders I am the Peg in Squarepeg Art Studio. I sell wheel thrown and hand built items.
We have a pottery studio in our home where I make pottery, teach group hand building classes, and provide individual wheel throwing lessons. I use stoneware and earthenware clays. All the glazes I use are mixed by me and are food safe unless otherwise noted. On some nonfood items I often brush on a terra sigilatta, then stain it to create a unique finish. Inspiration for my creations have come fro
m my life experiences; either I have thought of something I wish I had or there is something I wish was different from what I have. I might start with an idea then talk with Nancy, as the conversation progresses the idea takes on a life of its own. I enjoy be challenged in the studio, if there is something someone wants to have made I enjoy figuring out how to accomplish the need. Our primary outlet for selling our products is a store in Columbia, MO called Artlandish. we also have things for sale in a few other stores nearby as well as www.etsy.com/shop/SquarepegPottery.

Winter Fun Guide - Inside Columbia
It’s officially that time of year when the sky is almost always gray and several layers have to be donned before stepping foot outside. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun! We’ve put together 25 activities that are sure to keep you entertained and jolly this winter. From chop-your...
It's going to be a great show, similar to the Interpretation Show at the Art League.
Just finished this piece,"The Great Divide" as a response from a writing for a show in Kansas City. The show is called Ekphrasis at the Box Gallery opening reception Friday November 2nd from 6-8.

GREED is the title of Peg's latest sculpture. Think it could be a result of our Summer of Fishing? Check out the opening, this Friday night, at Columbia Art League!
FYI: After 10 years, Peg and Nancy decided to become bonafide! They had a "pop up" wedding on Saturday, January 6, 2018. Thanks to everyone who showed up that day and shared the surprise.
You-All gave Peg & I the perfect Saturday. Thank you for sharing a bit of that beautiful day with us. We met new and old neighbors, saw relatives of all sorts and moved a lot of pottery and a few gourds out of the house. Thank you all for liking, sharing and communicating with others about Squarepegart!!
Peg got an early birthday present this year: A 3-D printer! It has become her new obsession, thinking up all sorts of things she can print and impress into clay.
Six artists from Squarepeg Art Studio submitted to the 58th Annual Boone County Art Show (10/14-10/15/17). Congratulations to the two award winners! Can you guess who made each piece? Submitting artists: Fran, Pam, Nancy, Beverly, Linda, Peg.
Peg has been sculpting lately. She wants to make sure you all know this is "IN PROCESS". I think it's fun to see things in stages, follow how the art unfolds, the decisions Peg makes along the way to bring her vision 3-D. -N
Nance and her friend Candy went to the country last week and got 60! new little egg gourds. They should keep her busy for a while. Stop in from time-to-time to see what she's done with them.
Check out this cute pot Pam made to remind her that Spring will come again.

Dear Friends, My friend Maombi is desperately seeking a ride to Kansas City on September 18th. She has an appointment to finalize her citizenship at 8 a.m. that morning. Peg & I are taking our mini-vacation that week and I cannot take her. If anyone is willing to take this amazing young woman to K.C. on 9/18 PLEASE call me at 881-4912. Thanks to all who consider!!
Nancy and I will be selling pottery and gourds, stop by - we would love to see you.
We will love seeing you at our Market this week end
I did this piece as a response to a writing for the Interpretation Show at the Columbia Art league. I call it "Hand of God". The writing was written by a man named Steve. The title is "Duty". Here it is;
The condemned man was oblivious, his fellow prisoners cunning from Auschwitz experience. He had been seen stealing food. Even without theft, the prisoners were nearly skeletal; with theft, the weakest would soon die. It was unwritten law understood by all: steal food, risk death in the night. The executioners were five, the method—suffocation by blanket. They would meet at midnight.
They huddled around the elder’s bunk, night groans filling the barracks like sounds from a restive, slumbering Hell.
The youngest, tremulous, whispered, “Could this be mortal sin?”
The elder, steady, said aloud, “Yes, if we fail in our duty.”
My entry in the Boone County National Bank Art Show. It's called "The Brain" It's kind of hard to see the little people, they represent our ideas and thoughts.

Gennie made these amazing sculptures. They make me think of the gentleness of a cow, the inquisitiveness of a rabbit, and freedom of a dancing crane.

There are LOTS of leaves to choose from these days in the back yard at Squarepeg pottery. Leaves make any piece more interesting, organic and just plain cool.
Everyone is loving the new glaze called Readers' Digest Red. Check it out!
The front yard is the space with the most sun around here. We have planted this area in years' past then life got in the way and pushed us in other directions. Peg learned about the straw-bale method over the winter and we have had a lot of fun setting up our first bale garden. Drive by, walk by or stop by to check it out. Happy Spring!
There are a lot of characters hanging out at the Studio. Obviously some are struggling with issues!
