Sherri Jo Adams
Sherri Jo began her pottery career 8 years ago by taking some classes from 2 established potters & then continued studying independently. Since then Sherri Jo has won awards in juried competitions, & recognized in ‘Dallas Home Design’ & ‘Richardson Living’ magazines. She continues teaching beginning wheel lessons for adults, works on numerous custom orders, & makes her pottery available through galleries and art shows.
The simple shapes and forms are one of a kind, wheel thrown & hand built stoneware. All pieces are functional
& created with non-leaded clay bodies and glazes. Sherri Jo’s pottery is safe in the oven, microwave and dishwasher.
Sherri Jo‘s inspiration comes from her faith & the works of all artists, no matter what the medium. She enjoys creating forms that can be used & shared among family & friends for generations to come. She wants her art
to be recognized for the love and hope she has for life, and her belief in traditions.
“Pottery making is one of the most ancient arts, & I have always been intrigued by the process & techniques, which are still very much the same. I am mostly inspired by early utilitarian American folk pottery that uses simple shapes & forms. When I work with the earth’s substance, clay, I am able to become an integral part of this world. So, by creating useful pots with my hands for others to enjoy, I am expressing my thanks to God for blessing me with this talent.”
