Each artist is unique and yet they all start with wet clay. You can enjoy the efforts of over 20 artists in a well lit setting and compare their styles, shapes , colors, and themes.

According to artist Donna Williams, "Working with clay is always an endeavor in communication, reconciliation, and transformation." Her work shows the sense of movement that is possible within the finished pieces.

David McAlpine creates pictures/images/portraits that are the result of tile-like pieces, with added layers and colors, and sometimes glass or metal.

Elvera Shappirio marries beauty and utility to create vases, plates, and cups that bring art to everyday living.

Yiu Keung Lee creates detailed three-dimensional pieces and says, "My work is often autobiographical; I am part of the sculpture."
