Ceramics is an area with many outlets. It can range from exquisite, complicated single pieces of sculpture to useful mass-produced household items. Clay can be manipulated in ways that most people cannot imagine. No matter what the end product, working with this material involves not just a solid three-dimensional ability, but a technical knowledge of how clay and glazes function.

“It’s really important to me that my pots are used, not just looked at and pondered,” says Joan, whose show, Full Circle, is on display at the Mary E. Black Gallery. “I’m really after that connection with the audience. And, I believe that as someone continues to use a piece, it builds a history. You think, ‘Oh, the last time I took this out, we had a great dinner party.’ Or, ‘I always get this out when the entire family is gathered around the table.’”
