Muddy Fish Studio
Originally an oil painter, Brenda touched clay and knew it was something special that fills the need to be creative and work with her hands. Working with clay enables her to make art, but also make art that is useful, hence the phrase "Art for everyday use."
As a wood-fire potter, Brenda continually changes her work to take advantage of its benefits. Different clays react to the flame and ash, and she modifies shapes to catch ash drips and break up the flame as it passes the pieces. Wood-firing also forces some of the control to the kiln.
Her utilitarian pieces are created and imagined in peoples homes, being used and adding to the experience of a fine meal or even daily breakfast. Look in your cupboards and see an art gallery!
