Colleen Riley: eurekapots.com
Colleen Riley creates primarily functional high-fire light stoneware, with a current emphasis on serving pieces and vessels. Her work merges the subtle patterns, colors and textures of the rural setting of surroundig Eureka Pots with the graceful forms of early-mid 20th-century design. Rich colors and subtle layered surfaces are achieved through a variety of high-temperature firing methods. She also create sculptural pieces that are stacked for display in the garden or home. She founded Minnesota Women Ceramic Artists (MNWCA). MNWCA is a non-profit professional organization that hosts events, sponsors exhibitions and provides support to its 70+ members.
