"Within my journey as an artist the pursuit of functional ware that transcended time has given way to the intoxicating revelry of the aesthetic drunk. I pursue the overtly decorative surfaces on wares that demand center stage on the formal dining table."  -- Kate Maury

"At the core of my ceramic work is the vessel which has many associations including nourishment, ripening, sexuality, and transformation...I am drawn to ornament, embellishment, color and pattern. I have a strong interest in detail and minutiae...As I start working I am only interested in abstracting and translating stimuli and feelings into a tangible, evocative object. Sometimes it is a sculpture, sometimes it is a vase." -- Carol Gouthro
