Penne Roberts - Pottery
As a potter, I enjoy figuring out how to make the things I see in my head and in my sketchbooks. My imagination is piqued daily by all the information, history, and philosophy I read. My interest in the myriad possibilities of clay has not wavered over many years and the initiation of a new idea or technique is always exciting to begin and always exciting to complete.
When I create my work, I use whatever method works for making my idea come to life: whether thrown on the wheel, coiled, or built from a slab of clay.I have been producing functional and sculptural pottery in the invigorating high desert country of New Mexico for 48 years. I have been teaching beginning to advanced pottery making for 40 years.
I love to travel, and have a deep connection and history with Ghost Ranch, outside of Abiquiu, NM.
