Dolores is a self taught potter living in North Carolina. She is drawn to organic shapes, colors, and texture. She uses different techniques and glazing to provide texture and layers that create contrast and depth.
"Every time I sit down at the wheel, pull up to my worktable, I have an idea of what I am trying to create but I try not to force my expectations on my work. I like to balance my intentions with the intention of the clay. I keep my ideas and guidelines soft and pliable, ready to be altered.
I aim to create pottery that holds true to the idea that we are not perfect, and that in our textured life, however rough, course, smooth or misshapen, our beauty and true character are revealed and adorned."
