Description

The Southern Highland Craft Guild bounces back from an unprecedented year with “Resilience,” its first Member-focused show of 2021. On the second level of the Folk Art Center in the Focus Gallery, the work of five Guild Members will be on display from February 6 through April 27. Disciplines include metalsmithing, quilting, hand-built & wheel thrown ceramics, woodcarving, and leather tooling. Members featured are Joseph Rhodes, Diana Ramsay, Lynn Fisher, Karen Noggle, Judy Brater, and Marion Schlauch.

Clay sculptures are the collaborative work of Judy Brater and Marion Schlauch. “Marion and I have known and respected each other as female ceramic artists since 1980’s. We have a combined experience of 100 years. Her expertise is throwing and mine is sculpture,” states Brater. As Covid started to affect our businesses, instead of closing up shop, we got together and started collaborating on pieces – what has developed is a new approach to our individual styles, and has helped us to remain enthusiastic in our craft.”

Judy Brater

I grew up influenced by family artists . Art has been my purpose in life , my chosen vocation . I received my formal education from the University of Cincinnati where I studied painting and ceramics . For 46 years , I have been developing my craft . Creativity is inspired by my natural surroundings . When I pass on a piece that I have created to a customer who years later will tell me they are still enjoying the piece they acquired , my life is worth every minute I spend in clay !
