Colleen Huth is a self-taught slab pottery builder from rural Wisconsin. She started out with a love of drawing and painting early in life, and received a degree in 2D design. After college Colleen found a part time job at a pottery studio, where she realized her passion for ceramics. There, she had limitless space and materials to learn her craft. She chose to pursue slab building because it allowed her to incorporate her 2D design skills. Colleen’s inspiration comes from the natural world around her and the need for functional objects. All of Colleen’s work is high-fire stoneware. Each piece is slab-built and pressed with hand-drawn stamps, antique lace, or flowers. Colleen started off selling her work at local retail craft shows, and after a few short years, her work is now displayed in galleries across the nation. She now works from her home studio, filling orders and cultivating new ideas every day.
