Charis Cook's Profile
Hi! My name is Charis. I love clay and I love playing with it, just to see what it can do. It amuses me to imagine the first person to figure out that dry mud could be put in a fire to make usable vessels. People have been "playing in the mud" ever since and now I'm here, continuing the experience.
I have always been fascinated by the created world and I enjoy incorporating bits of nature into my work, whether it be color, texture, or carving. In addition, I've always been one to do things a little differently and to use things for a purpose other than its original intent. This shapes my thinking as I work, stretching myself to explore and experiment with form and function.
Hopefully, you can enjoy the results of my work just as much as I enjoy making it!
