Sally Guger Artist Statement
I have been in love with clay since I was around 15 years old. My work reflects my desire to make honest, functional pots. All of my work is wheel thrown using mid-range stoneware. I also spend endless hours making minor adjustments in over two dozen glaze recipes that I make from scratch. All of my work is of course lead-free and totally safe for all types of food. My pottery can be heated in the oven and placed in the dishwasher. The microwave will not hurt the pots, but certain glazes might get unusually hot.
My work brings me joy because I have never lost the desire to “throw” a pot. My glazes bring a unique style to my work, and I love knowing that using my functional pieces will bring pleasure to the owners for years to come. I welcome commissions from one mug to complete sets of dinnerware.
