Pine Hill Pottery

  

Potter, Pam O’Hara

Pam’s distinctive colors and glazes are warm and comforting to the touch and her artistic talent shines through in her beautiful shapes of her vessels. Pam is one of the owners of Artistica Gallery.

Growing up in Cincinnati, Pam used to gather the natural clay from the creek bed and form objects d’art. At least her mother thought so…. Fast forward to after college graduation and she decided to take a “clay” class from Charlie Blosser at Oakland Community College and she caught the “bug” once again. And the rest is history, as they say.

As a resident of Dexter for many “moons” she has taught clay classes to both children and adults in the community and Ann Arbor. Pam has exhibited in galleries in Michigan and Ohio. She can be found at Artistica in downtown historic Dexter, on South Main Street in July for the annual Ann Arbor Art Fairs, The Annual Potters Market in December and other local art shows.

Getting her hands into the “mud” is truly her bliss!

One Acre Ceramics

  

Sarah and Thomas Gelsanliter

One Acre Ceramics pottery and tiles are handmade by Sarah and Thomas Gelsanliter at their studio in southeastern Michigan. Sarah and Thomas often draw on the colors and patterns of their surroundings while creating their work. Luminous glazes and intricate designs are the hallmarks of the art pottery and tiles made at One Acre Ceramics, and each piece is hand-crafted to be both beautiful and functional. With his background in design and tile-making, Thomas draws and hand carves all of the designs used at One Acre Ceramics. Covered jars, vases, candle holders, and other vessels are thrown on the potter’s wheel by Sarah. Both artists work on the pieces at different points in the process, allowing them to create finished work that neither could have achieved alone. Working together also allows them to draw on their varied backgrounds in clay and means daily conversations about designing new pieces, expanding surface treatments, and solving technical challenges.
