Miriam Shuros' Profile
Many years ago I was at a clay workshop in the beautiful Chequamegon National Forest of Wisconsin. I was walking on a forested path and noticed the daisies were in bloom. I knelt down to look closely at one and was deeply moved by the complexity of the design. I took it, along with some native grasses and leaves and started making imprints into the clay. It was on that day sitting at a table in front of the salt kiln that I became fascinated with creating designs using unique and varied objects for imprinting. It reminds me of how we each leave imprints on the lives of those we touch...ones of beauty, of balance, of grace, and unfortunately, sometimes we leave a mess.
I enjoy doing small, detailed work as I create each original pendant by hand. I like the flat surface of a tile; it allows me to explore glazes and designs that create striking effects in clay…
