Artist: Barb Garbe
Looking for the extraordinary in the everyday is a concept that captured my imagination years ago and continues to influence my work today.|
My focus is to create functional pottery that can enhance and add pleasure to the simple tasks of every day life -- serving a meal, enjoying a cup of tea, filling a vase with flowers. Each piece makes its own unique statement with no two being exactly alike.
I am always pleased when someone wants to own one of my pots as I see the handling and use of the piece as a continuation of the creative process by providing function from its form. I have been active in ceramics since 1975 and currently work out of my studio in Petoskey, Michigan.
I am an exhibiting member at the Northern Michigan Artist Market and the Blue Heron Gallery in Elk Rapids, Michigan.
