Christiane Barbato Sutherland's Profile
My name is Christiane and I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I was born and raised in the southeast part of Brazil, surrounded by tropical plants, and I use them to inspire me and even mold my creations. I use a watermellon sometimes as a mold for my bowls. I have a home studio and I feel very blessed to be able to work from home. I lose track of time when I'm "playing" with my clay and glazes. My favorite color is turquoise and it's also the stone for Arizona, and I also love off-whites, grays and blues.
With a background in Business and an Mba , I decided by the age of 40 that it was time to do what I love and be happy! I'm greatful for being a stay at home mom and raising my kids like I always wanted. I caught the ceramic "bug" as a teenager in High School. I'm always taking classes beacause I believe that we can get better everyday and it inspires so much and it's so great to be around other potters!...
