Who or What is MsElaineous Pottery?

Elaine Klapproth is MsElaineous Pottery.  I love making handmade pottery - not just one type of pot over and over, not just one color.  I enjoy variety, miscellaneous shapes and colors - hence -MsElaineous Pottery

My first exposure to clay was as a child exploring deposits in the creeks of the Cincinnati, Ohio area.  Earning a BS in Chemistry from Purdue University, I pursued my interest in the science of chemical reactions.  The minerals, chemical reactions of oxidation and reduction all play a part in my pottery guided by the artist but not completely controlled.

Years later I rekindled my interest in clay as a resident of Hampstead, NC.  My art is influenced by my various travels.  Forms, colors, and shapes - giant California Redwoods, Costa Rican rainforests, Icelandic waterfalls, and historic Grecian and Anasazi pots.
