This installment of Seeing Art, Seeing Artists focuses on a great Mid-MO Potter, Fadra. Her handmade work is earthy and unique. I love her great outlook on her art, her stunning pieces, and her fun personality. Keep reading to learn more about her process!
"I love the sensation of manipulating "mud" into something beautiful. I love seeing an object grow from a lump of nothing into something beautiful, functional or both."
"I have an undergraduate degree in Fine art from Western Illinois University, and teaching certification from University of North Carolina at Asheville. I have been blessed to teach in a small school district for over 12 years, and have seen some amazing artists blossom. Helping others realize their potential is one of my favorite aspects of my job and my workshops. "
"I am a teacher, a mother, a potter, a grower of things leafy and wonderful. I tend to combine my interests, and this is why you will see much greenery and garden inspiration in my work. "
"I hope to share the joy that clay and nature brings me with as many people as possible through my work."
