Gail Altschuler's Profile
Contemporary ceramics, porcelain, paintings and prints. I am often juggling between my love of modernist decoration, flamboyant colour and good design. I paint on canvas, create vessels, bowls, vases, platters, mugs, tumblers, planters and cylinders.
I enjoy the simple contrasts of black and white, matt and glossy, functional or purely aesthetic. Also enjoy creating groups, vessels that have a relationship to each other and display well together.
I am a painter, printmaker, and ceramicist. I use certain techniques across all three media, like stencilling, screen printing, layering and texturing surfaces. My themes include nature, the grid and abstraction, woven together. I also teach art to children covering drawing, painting, printmaking and pottery. I am passionate about art history and work on stimulating creativity, spontaneity and risk…
