" Made by hand with a love

of all things Northwest. "

Contemporary Northwest Clay Sculpture by Karen Miner

The Pacific Northwest has always been an inspiration and influence in my art. In 1998, after years working in other media I returned to clay. There is something magical in the permanence of clay: the way it comes from the earth as a soft and pliable substance but once fired will retain its shape for centuries.

Each of my sculptures are hand-built, carved, cast, stretched, combined, and altered. Many different methods are used to attain the desired results. The salmon are raku fired to create the variety of colors and patinas. The Ravens, Sea Stars and large sculptures are high fired and can withstand winters outdoors under most conditions.

Enjoy the newest art and widest range of individual artist's original work providing the rare opportunity of seeing the artists in their studio environment and offering explanations and demonstrations of their materials and art process. This is also a unique time to purchase fine art directly from the artists.
