From 1976 until 2000, Gail Frasier produced functional pottery in a successful business, and through these years she felt an increasing pull toward expressing her love of nature in sculptural pottery forms. Resulting are breakthrough pieces reflecting what she sees in weather, plant life, animal life, and rock formations. She uses stains, clays, ashes, and Shino colored glazes to achieve these effects in her thrown - and - sculpted works of the past several years.
Gail received her BA from the University of South Florida before moving to Colorado in 1974. She has exhibited in several regional shows and currently teaches pottery in the Center for the Arts in Evergreen, Colorado.
Sam Saunders spent many years as a cabinetmaker and since 2005 has used his creative talents to showcase the beauty that can be found in unique creations resulting in wood bowls and platters. The rough wood for the pieces is cured for up to two years before being turned on a lathe to reveal its hidden beauty. He uses aspen, black willow, sycamore, cherry, and hackberry, and enhances each piece by attaching Southern Long Leaf Pine needles to the edge with fiber from the Raffia Palm in a manner of weaving.
Sam studied at the Arrowmount School of the Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, as well as the Water Works Studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After spending 20 years on the Western Slope of Colorado he makes his home and studio in Tulsa.
