David Ramirez
I started painting around the 70s. Though I stopped for many years, I recently started up again. I really enjoy acrylics, I am experienced in water colors and oils. One day soon I’ll get back to them. I also enjoy working with repurposed wood. I’m making small curiosities, garden art, things like door knockers, small tables and other things. I’m always looking for other forms of art to work with. I’m now semi-retired, so I’m keeping myself busy with all my art.  David will be at the Faery Godmother's Enchanted Cottage and Garden,44843 Dinely Drive.

OPEN STUDIO - River Water Pottery Studio and Gallery

Anne and HJ Brown
The studio overlooks the South Fork of the Kaweah River and is surrounded by nature which is the inspiration for many of the colors and shapes reflected in the pottery. Leaves, flowers, trees, and animals find their way into the wheel thrown shapes made by Anne on the potter’s wheel. H.J.’s creations are hand-built, usually starting as a flat piece of clay from the slab roller. Sometimes their work is collaborative.The pieces are mostly functional. All are food safe and can be used in oven, microwave, or dishwasher. The glazes are all lead free and non-toxic. Many of the pieces have recipe ideas and/or accessories for use attached. Anne and H.J. are especially pleased when they learn that someone uses their work in their homes as a part of their daily lives. The Browns like to travel the country and visit other potteries and studios for new ideas to try. It’s still great fun to make the traditional and functional shapes, but the quest for new concepts keeps things growing and changing. See the Brown's new gallery to display their very original take on functional pottery at River Water Pottery Studio and Gallery 44305 So. Fork Drive
Jami Beck
