Nancy Thayer Clay

 I realize that as spin my wheel to hand-thrown new ceramic pieces to be touched, held, looked at and used, I become more invested in being a potter.  Throwing is usually only the beginning, as hand-building, extruding and slab construction will continue to be added to my pots.  The clay always wins and I bend to its rules.  I’m the designer and I initiate the process, but the clay pulls me in and leads me on.

Scroll through the next few pages and check out my work.  Some pieces are in galleries, some in my studio and some are sold.  Pieces are unique, but “similar” or “in the style of” can be made.

welcome to functional and sculptural clay works.
