Elizabeth Haworth's Profile
After working for over twenty years as a graphic designer and art
director, I recently returned to my roots in ceramics while living in southern Colorado. Having traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and the American southwest I was fascinated by the native arts in those cultures. Drawing on impressions from the indigenous wood carvers in Jamaica and the pottery and weaving cultures of New Mexico I began making a new series of hand-built pots in 2004, while continuing to paint and photograph at my home near Taos, New Mexico.
My ceramic work is often described as organic. The pebble pots are
hand-built stoneware forms using coils and modified coils which are scraped, paddled and burnished. This is a technique employed by both ancient cultures and contemporary potters. The designs are inspired by
natural river stones…
