Artist’s Statement – Biography

Debbie Gilmer has been a full-time potter since 2004 with a studio and showroom near South Mountain.

Debbie is currently developing a palette of soft matte glaze colours with names such as the river rock and muted moss. Using both a retro speckled stoneware and a new creamy nutmeg clay body in her most recent series of work.

“Creating in clay allows the rich unknown within me to emerge into visible form. I value the beauty that is revealed every day. I value the rhythm of daily life that is open to possibility and blessed with originality. I value creating items for every day use that balance function and form … a joy to use and admire.”
