Rice bowl Leslie Koehler

I met Leslie Koehler many years ago in Vermont.  She came into our Vermont gallery hoping that we would consider selling her work.  This artist who loves to travel and learn about other cultures had been gone for some time.  Leslie was ready to get back to work with a new enthusiasm for clay.  She has created her own style of Majolica.  It is a style of decorating handmade ceramic artwork.  I am most familiar with Italian majolica.  Leslie loves this technique of painting imagery on terra cotta.  For this potter, it reminds her of the earth and our connection to it.  We have several different styles of Ms. Koehler’s work at C2C Gallery.
