SAMFA's Gift Shop Featured Artist for December is Vicki Hardin
Vicki Hardin is a ceramic artist, brush maker and jewelry designer, who lives and maintains a studio at the Chicken Farm Art Center in San Angelo, Texas. She earned a BA from Angelo State University and continued her study of ceramics through Texas Tech University. Her work is shown nationally and has been included in numerous exhibitions. She has taught workshops across the county including at Penland School of Crafts.
She shapes vessels by pinching small thumb sized pieces of clay into quietly elegant forms which are then fired in a pit using pecan limbs. Although the process is very harsh and considerable breakage occurs, Hardin considers the outcome worth it. No two pieces are alike.
