Crop Circle Clay
by Diana Brower
(Troy, Ohio USA)
Love of Clay + Passion for crop circles = Crop Circle Clay! Hello, I am Diana Brower and I call my latest line of pottery Crop Circle Clay. My fascination with all things spiritual and the mysterious has lead me to use my creative energies to put the spotlight on crop circles.
They trigger something in me that brings me joy and excitement! Who makes them? Is it our collective unconscious? Starry friends? Mother Earth herself? Hoaxers or crop artists? What do they mean? By sharing the designs of the crop circles, I hope to bring attention to this great mystery!
Ceramics is my primary creative outlet. As I love texture, clay is the best medium for me; and it helps ground me to Mother Earth! I love to use dark brown stoneware clay so that my pots are rustic and earthy. All my pots are high fired for durability.
As I sit down at my potter's wheel, I calm my mind and give the clay Reiki energy. This connects me to the clay and "warms it up" for me. "Playing" on the potter's wheel is both challenging and therapeutic. I love to create inspirational handmade vessels for everyday use. Each piece is created by hand with love and no two are alike--even when I try!
I first discovered pottery when I lived in NYC in the 90's. I took lessons at Chelsea Ceramic Guild for five years before moving back to Ohio. I loved it so much that I set up my own studio called Dancing Dolphin Pottery.
I taught pottery classes for both children and adults at Troy-Hayner Cultural Center for a few years. Currently, I am not teaching classes but am producing pottery for both of my shops, CropCircleClay and Dancingdolphinpotter.
