Debi Wichman’s claywork is made of stoneware clay and usually begins with a wheel-thrown vessel. Hand-formed decoration is added, and the pot is finished with food-safe commercial glazes. She finds inspiration in the forms, shapes and colors of nature.

She describes her work: “Whether walking in my back yard or hiking in the woods, I find myself gazing into diminutive worlds, enchanted by scanning the undergrowth and discovering what is hidden there. Light and weather create fascinating patterns, a catalyst for my creativity.”
