Phyllis Hamilton


I started throwing pottery when I had my first teaching job in Florida. I have continued to create pottery off and on but for the past ten years I have made it my favorite pastime. 

Making pottery is a joyful experience for me. It is fun for me to create functional pieces and make things that people imagine. My work is primarily of stoneware with occasional pieces of porcelain. I use high fire glazes as I prefer the rich and varied colors they allow. My inspiration comes as I am working, and creating original pieces is pure therapy. The time I spend at my potter’s wheel is stimulating and just makes me a happier person.
