Ceramics and Cards by Liz Worthy

Working on greeting cards is 1 part hand drawing 2 parts computer time.

Cups get an okay at my clay studio - I love adding words in addition to drawings. This stencil is my favorite new tool.

Clay and Cards

I divide my time between creating greeting cards and making vessels out of clay. There's a lot of crossover. The illustrations I might make initially for a card often find their way to the sides of my pots. An illustration on a pot often gets reworked into a drawing on a card.

The work in each is very different. For ceramics, I work out of a large community studio, making it a very social experience whereas my drawing is generally pretty solitary.
