Elizabeth Nields is a potter whose work spans a range of clay types and forms - from earthware to porcelain and from small vessels to large sculptures. And because of this, her workshop in Gilbertsville New York is a wonderland of objects. She runs eight kilns - one large enough for impressively large sculpture - and hosts two large work areas. Her work is at once fanciful and stoic with a presence that deserves contemplation and admiration.
Much of her sculpture is spread out over her land from “Passageway” which is fourteen feet high to “Torsos” which line a path over the foundation of an abandoned Chicken Barn. There are many pieces that reflect an Ancient Elephant Temple which would have been found in ruins in 3000 BC.
Elizabeth discusses her art in the video below and also leads workshops for adults and children at her studio. Visitors are always welcome. Just call 783 2476 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Information on her work and classes can be found at on her website.
