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.
