Barbara Dunshee's Profile

About

My ceramics studio is surrounded by foliage, flowers, and critters, being next to the arboretum in Seattle, Washington. It's a fantastic place to work and create and breathe.

I was first introduced to ceramics in early 2000, while working as a graphic designer. By 2003 ceramics took center stage in my life and it's still there today. I started with strictly functional work, got a bit playful and found my first voice in my Lively Lidded Vessels. They became my signature pieces. I also started teaching. I then added sculptural works to my basket as I transferred my lifelong tendency to draw up faces into 3 dimensional clay beings. Now I work in all three realms, functional, decorative and sculptural with much overlap. I'm alternately and simultaneously excited about each one.
Some of my sculpture is also on Etsy at http://www.barbaradunshee.etsy.com
