Christy DeHaven

My mother and grandmother were the sort that believed that getting dirty was an acceptable part of childhood.  Play hard, use your imagination, and come home tired – but on-time – for dinner.   Making pottery allows me to continue to play in the tradition in which I was raised.  It also challenges me with the endless possibilities of every step in the creative process.  And it’s a whole lot of fun.  I fell in love.

The wheel is my chosen tool.  Additionally, I often alter, carve, and add hand-built bits to create functional pieces with a twist of whimsy.  My functional stoneware pottery is food, microwave, and dishwasher safe.
