What Cheer Potters make fine functional stoneware using a potter’s wheel and a special blend of clay, which adds a unique quality to the workability and firing properties of the finished product. The glazes and clay body are continuously being developed for color, feel, and texture, with qualities that work well in the microwave and dishwasher.
What Cheer Potters believe that the life of an artist is a continual learning process. It requires a dedication to learning in order to convey the inner feelings and experiences that have accumulated and to transfer it to a formless lump of clay. Even after years of experience and thousands of pots, the trained eye can see qualities that might have made a difference in bringing more “life” and excitement to each pot. We need to keep looking and learning to develop our inner selves, because it is only then that each piece will have a presence to
stand on its own as an expression of its creator.
