Gail West

Hand building textured, organically shaped forms is Gail West’s passion. These forms often include impressed textures on the surface from materials found in nature. Gail West wraps slabs of clay into handmade molds, and presses leaves and other organic materials into the clay, resulting in ‘one of a kind’ organic forms — a wonderful diversion from throwing on the potter’s wheel.
