Doreen Baskin Artist Statement

I have been working with clay for thirty years. All of my work is one-of-a-kind. I use traditional hand building techniques such as coil, pinching and slab construction. I use mostly low fire white earthenware, although some pieces are made out of terra cotta. Every piece is painted with underglazes and bisque fired, sometimes two or three times for layers of color. At the end of this process a clear glaze is applied.

I love the flexibility and spontaneity of clay. It allows my subconscious to flow freely and take form. Sometimes I have a "vision" of a final piece, but often I'll let the clay guide me as I pinch and coil. I paint my pieces the same way. I let my imagination lead my hand. The result is what you see before you.

I always work on several pieces at a time; this allows more of my ideas to manifest themselves, before they fade away. My imagery includes animals, people, patterns, sexuality and duality. Most of my pieces have two "fronts", instead of a "front" and a "back." My smaller pieces are simpler versions of the larger works, and often functional.
