Bethany Woll

My approach to clay is intuitive and spontaneous in nature. I would not consider myself
a hand builder, sculpture or thrower. I am a believer in the idea that technique follows
ideas. This belief allows me the creative freedom to move freely and explore my ideas in

Inspiration for my work comes from many different directions. A functional piece may
arise form a meditative place, an observation of nature or simply the need to engage with
clay. My sculptural pieces tend to be more energetic and stem from a broader personal
narrative. Then there are those pieces which fall somewhere in between. All are of equal
importance to my creative process.
