Kendall Hills Clay Studio

Kendall Hills Clay Studio Located in Peninsula, Ohio near the Virginia Kendall Park in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Specializing in wheel-thrown pots for enhancing daily life.

I started working on a potter's wheel while in high school. I earned a BFA from Kent State University and attended Penland School of Crafts in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. My most significant ceramics teachers include Tom Turner and John Gill. I have found Asian pottery to be aesthetically inspiring as well as the work of many of my contemporaries. I taught at Hiram College for a fe

Porcelain Tillandsia planter with a matt copper glaze I call NYDB. Years ago I was perusing a fellow student’s clay exhibit with my professor. When I asked about the beautiful glaze on a pot, he said, “None of your damn business”. He must have thought better of it because a few days later I found he’d written the recipe and left it at my work station.

Porcelain Gaiwan. I made a series of gaiwans for steeping tea on Casey’s request. It’s tricky to fire a porcelain lid separately from the vessel and then get the right fit.

This is just delightful.

In 2006 a high school English teacher asked students to write a famous author and ask for advice. Kurt Vonnegut was the only one to respond - and his response is magnificent:

“Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. Lockwood, and Messrs Perin, McFeely, Batten, Maurer and Congiusta:

I thank you for your friendly letters. You sure know how to cheer up a really old geezer (84) in his sunset years. I don’t make public appearances any more because I now resemble nothing so much as an iguana.

What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.

Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your lives. Draw a funny or nice picture of Ms. Lockwood, and give it to her. Dance home after school, and sing in the shower and on and on. Make a face in your mashed potatoes. Pretend you’re Count Dracula.

Here’s an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Lockwood will flunk you if you don’t do it: Write a six line poem, about anything, but rhymed. No fair tennis without a net. Make it as good as you possibly can. But don’t tell anybody what you’re doing. Don’t show it or recite it to anybody, not even your girlfriend or parents or whatever, or Ms. Lockwood. OK?

Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash receptacals. You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what’s inside you, and you have made your soul grow.

God bless you all!"
Kurt Vonnegut

This is an earthenware hanging planter with a tray for any excess water. With use, the unglazed semi-porous clay will take on new character just like terracotta pots in your home.

BLUE PILE
When it gets really cold bluebirds roost together in a pile using their collective body heat to help them survive. They arrange themselves so they don’t smother and alternate positions within the pile.

This is today :-) We hope to see you! Can't make it to the opening reception? The John F Seibering Gallery is open Monday-Friday during business hours. Contact the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley National Park for more information. Seven women began meeting at the end of February, 2016, following months of individual conversations about being a mom and an artist. This show--the written words and visual art---are part of the process. We invite you to join the discussion today, and at the Salon on April 2.
