Cerramic Stones By Patty Muenks

Inspiration comes to me in a variety of spaces, from thick forest trails and sandy coastlines to wildflower-filled meadows and rocky outcroppings.   The common thread is a closeness with nature. Combinations of colors, detailed patterns, and organic forms come out in my ceramic art. While wading along riverbeds, I fill my pockets with rocks, admiring the smoothness, textures, and tones.  This is where the idea of my ceramic stones was born. 
Each stone is formed in the palm of my hand, then individually designed with freestyle carvings and patterns.  These ceramic stones are fully glazed to promote the smooth, tangible quality found in nature.  I enjoy hand building with pinch pots, coils and slabs. Through these techniques of hand building, I allow the clay some freedom to create more organic shapes. I try to mimic the forms found in nature where edges have been sculpted, smoothed, and rounded by the elements.
 I use a variety of commercial glazes and fire all the stoneware pieces in electric kilns in my home studio. Each piece is an original, handmade design. My ceramic art adds unique character with patterns, textures, and colors to any home and garden while echoing the elements of nature.
