Pam Stern - DFW Local Ceramic Artist - Ceramic Sculptures
Pam has been making art of some kind since she was a child. When Pam was growing up there was a sculpture of a magician on her family's piano and that image has stayed with her throughout the years. Pam finally used that image on a stoneware violin she created. Her father played the violin and her mother played the piano. Pam was not musical so she expressed her creativity by drawing all over everything in the house.
For the last 20 years Pam has been creating works in clay, mostly figurative and a little surreal. Dreams and memories pop up in her work and often surprise herself. Pam find it a lot of fun to see her fingers do things her brain hasn't ordered. Pam loves to draw and paint and is spending more and more time doing this on the sculptures with underglazes and encaustics. When Pam is working in clay she is in her bliss and time disappears. Exploring the possibilities and encountering the unexpected are what inspire her and keeps Pam creating new pieces.
