How a Painter became a Clay Artist

I loved to paint, especially people. And, I still do. However, when I married a potter, I just had to get my hands in the clay, too. When our daughter was born, I created my first Nativity Set, in fact she used to make the little ladders for them. Living in the Southwest, first New Mexico, then Colorado, now Arizona, naturally affected my choice of subject matter. My nativity sets include Native People and Native Animals.
Javelini often invade our yard, so Javelini have invaded my claywork. They have been a big hit at the Sedona Arts Center and with Arizona Highways Magazine. If you don't know what a Javelina is, I can tell you this, it is NOT a pig! It is a Collared Peccary with sharp teeth and no tail. They ate all the tulip bulbs in our front yard, but didn't touch the iris. One night when I was making little clay javelini, I smelled a strange aroma floating into my studio window. I went outside to check, and there they were, a whole family of them, coming to inspire me.
All of my clay work is made by me here in Rimrock, Arizona, no molds, no outside help! Every piece is hand painted by me in my studio in Rimrock, Arizona. If there are beads on the piece, I do all of that, too. My husband does help me tie the knots....

Have fun shopping on my site. I had fun making the items here. Everything I present is handmade (no molds!), handpainted and signed by me, Karlene Voepel. You will notice a Southwest flavor here, since that is the air I breathe. In this digital age you will also see a real difference in this claywork, nothing is exactly the same...Handmade by Real Hands, by me!

I take pride in my work and want you to be pleased, therefore, I guarantee what I sell. Feel free to leave comments and suggestions. All work here is copyrighted by the artist, Karlene Voepel.
