“Clay can do almost anything- the only limits on working with this fascinating material are the number of creative brain cells left in my head,” Gleason said. “I started working with clay while an art major in college. Until then my artistic energies had largely been 2-D, but the physical-ness of working with clay and all it can potentially do hooked me completely and I’ve never looked back.”

Cynthia Link makes many functional clay objects from candle holders to bird houses. She has been a full-time potter and jewelry maker ever since she retired from her work as an art teacher. She is a member and shows with the Southern Exposure Artists of Spartanburg.
