A Bowl A Day – She hopes to make you smile!
Cory McCrory is an East Coast artist living in the MidWest. She has had a love affair with clay since grade school. In her late 30’s she moved away from throwing on the potter’s wheel to hand-building. This has become her love! One of the things that I love about Cory is that her ceramics are also a form of recycling. She uses discarded McDonald’s drink trays. Friends deliver used ones to her because they know that she will turn the cup holders into paper pulp. Cory adds about 15% of the paper pulp to her brown stoneware which is called “paperclay”. It is fired like traditional clay but allows a freedom to create thin, strong sculptural work. Cory truly hopes that her whimsical work will make you bring you pleasure for many years.
