 Barbara Powell

 

 

 

Barbara Powell has an impressive educational background. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Smith College and a Masters Degree of Arts in Policy from the University of Rhode Island. She spent many years in a demanding professional career but balanced this with her creative side, working in clay. She developed her skills , specifically in wheel throwing through classes at Broward and Palm Beach Community Colleges and the Armory Art Center. She is currently a member of the Wellington Art Society, the Ceramic League of Palm Beaches and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County.

 

 

WASBarbaraPowell Raku #2

Raku Vessel by Barbara Powell

 

 

 

 

 

Once Barbara retired, she and her husband Jerry, began creating a wide range of ceramic art using alternative firing processes. Her vessels have a strong physical presence and distinctive profiles that are truly elegant. While in the unglazed phase, her work may appear constrained but through the process of metallic glazes, colors and the final firing process call “Raku’, the vessels are transformed, adding layered dimensions of light and movement, creating a beautiful finished piece.

 

 

 

WASBarbaraPowell Saggar #1a

Saggar Plate by Barbara Powell

 

 

 

Barbara tells The Rickie Report,“I work to first produce subliminal, physical features that evoke a desire to hold the piece, simply because it feels good. Creating an appealing work of art that functions through both the physical and visual realm is the highest achievement I can strive for”.

Robert tells The Rickie Report, “I am attracted to organic form and energy whether it is found in nature, figure or movement. There is an energy in dance I am attracted to, something that takes over the dancer through their movements. This energy can also be found in a static form of living things. Sometimes it is used to convey a feeling or mood, other times to make a statement.”
