Candace McCollough's Profile
Having grown up in South Georgia and spending time abroad in Germany, I settled in the vibrant city of Atlanta. Always drawn to clay, I began to work in my spare time which lead to a passionate pursuit of the art.
The raku process intrigues and mystifies, imitating life, often resulting in an entirely different outcome than planned. Shaping the clay, glazing and firing produces dramatic and unexpected results.
Disappointed with the offerings of cremation urns, I began designing and creating raku vessels which seem in harmony with the process: fire, ashes, smoke, vessels and burial.
Often adorning the urns is a circular emblem-the continuum of life, with an emerging stroke-the spirit passing into the next realm.
