SJ Pottery is Sue Skinner and Joe Jostes. Sue writes, “After a few classes I was hooked on clay. The traditional pots made my heart sing. I love the story telling and their colors as much as the passion for living a tradition. The images on my sgraffito are my friends and family. It allows me to hold them close. A life in clay offers endless possibilities of expression, joy and the pursuit of craftsmanship.” Joe writes, “ I have been a potter for close to 40 years. While I work within several historic traditions I do not feel limited by these. Each offers me a different expression and a different discipline. I enjoy the challenge of merging the old techniques into new forms and voices. They are only a springboard to the multitude of ideas I have.’
