Nancy Green is a ceramicist working out of a rural area outside of Athens, Georgia. She works with stoneware clay and primarily focuses on making utilitarian ware for the table and kitchen, and for flower arrangements. Her pieces are treadle wheel thrown and then modified with hand built components consisting of textured slabs. Surface treatments consist of natural ash or soda, and/or applied slips and glazes. Pieces are fired in either a soda or wood kiln.
Her work, like her life, is simple, minimal, unadorned, casual and comfortable.
Nancy continues to be inspired by a childhood where every possible moment was spent in the country exploring the woods and playing in creeks. The earthy tones and minimalism of her functional pots reflect the nature that surrounded her then, and now in her sunny nature-filled studio.
