Nita Claise

My husband and I live in Tell City, Indiana which is a beautiful area along the Ohio River.
I enrolled in college with the intent of becoming an art teacher. Along the way I took ceramics courses and became addicted to the art of Raku. I decided to pursue my career as a ceramic artist instead of an art teacher. My work consists of both functional and non functional pottery. We do stoneware, Raku, horsehair, obavara, sgraffito, and Mishima. I love experimenting with techniques and materials. All of my glazes are mixed by hand from recipes which enables me to have more control and unique look as opposed to commercial glazes and clay.
