More than forty years have gone by since I started making pottery. I grew up in Northern Italy, lived in Atlanta for thirty-five years; moved to my mother’s home-place in NW GA a few years ago. My maternal grandmother taught me landscape painting with oils. My paternal grandmother taught me leather and tool copper tooling. I took several independent-study pottery classes at Georgia State University, but am mostly self-taught. I cut my teeth in the trade while running a cottage pottery industry in Cabbagetown, Atlanta, in the early 70’s.
I now teach several weekly pottery classes at the Rockmart Cultural Arts Center.
When I consider the artistic influences regarding my pottery making, I clearly admire the folk traditions of the common people more than I do court productions. Korean, Japanese, and Chinese peasant wares from around the year 1000 CE have been a strong influence. Living as I do in rural NW Georgia I am surrounded by the pre-industrial pottery tradition of producing farm objects, such as jugs, churns, and other simple, sturdy containers. I’ve visited with Lanier Meaders and Bill Gordy.
My preferred clay is a buff stoneware body I mix up and fire to cone 10 (2350 Fahrenheit) in an updraft propane-fueled kiln. Several times a year I throw raku parties for friends, family, and students.
In addition to traditional functional ware I enjoy producing modern sculptures mixing clay with other materials such as electricity, moving water, and metal, and acrylics. I often collaborate with artists of other disciplines, such as writers, and calligraphers, and painters. I find that alternating quickly made functional pieces with more time-consuming conceptual projects gives me a satisfying rhythm of activity.

My work focuses on the female as a sexual performer. My aim is to explore the social barriers that prevent women from being confident in their own sexuality and need for pleasure. Female intimacy is often a performance for their partner.
Lingerie is a costume that is not common in the male gender. There is a misconception that women are meant to be the pleasers, instead of the pleased.
My goal is to break apart the stereotypes of the temptress and the tempted and reduce female sexuality to its rawest state of physical honesty.

Growing up in an Alabama small town, I've always had a pencil in my hand, drawing what was in front of me ever since I was little. Using the simple materials began my love for black and white art pieces, allowing for the focus to be on the basic elements in an art piece - the shapes, tones and textures, but I'm beginning to branch out into color pieces. This also began my artistic focus on architectural aspects and ultimately what I would study in school. That is now changing to more abstract pieces.
Art for me is therapeutic, getting me focused on creating something new that I hope will inspire others to slow down and appreciate the simplicity of what's in front of them.
The majority of my work stems from memories, either mine or something someone else wants to remember in a medium other than photography. The rest of my work is the result of personal explorations in style or medium.
I am always on the lookout for contrasting elements in our world. I am in love with both forms of architecture, built and natural.

Timbite Kassa was born in Addis Ababa, in central Ethiopia in 1991. Growing up, he traveled from place to place in the neighboring countries of Africa. Throughout his journey, he has had the opportunity to travel through beautiful sceneries of the natural landscapes. In time, his love of the outdoors grew tremendously. Throughout his life, Timbite has always been fascinated by visionary arts and how the world is represented through the eyes of others. Naturally, he was drawn to the intricacy of nature’s art.
The interest was cultivated during his teenage years as he began to study sacred geometry and also as he began to invoke visions of his own. He further developed his skills by self-education in many forms of art styles including photography. Photography has been his primary medium of expression since the beginning of 2014 and design has been an instinctive interest beginning in 2015.
After a few years of studying his craft, Timbite dove even more into his photographic practice. This involved capturing intrinsic perspectives of the natural world as it is. The photographs, which Timbite takes on his journeys through nature, are only part of the narrative. He uses the practice of geometrically breaking his images down to give a unique perspective of the natural environment, and also allows each environment to have a voice of its own. It is definitely a collaboration between the artist and the environment.
He aims to harness the medium of visual transmission to link and communicate the divine reality of Nature, perhaps even attempt to reawaken a past memory of the deep intimate connection we once had with Nature. Timbite cherishes his connection with nature; in fact he believes that nature is an inseparable component of who we truly are. As the wise ancestors know as the Neteru of ancient Kemet, now known as Egypt say, “Nature is the true mirror to life, that only those who look into the heart of nature will look into the heart of themselves.” He strongly feels that the artistic exchange between the natural environment and the artist opens up many opportunities; he believes that individually following the path of a visual translator plays a role in the realization of our unified potential of expanded awareness, and with the hopes to inspire the creativity in the creator within us all. For if there is anything that is constant it is change itself, and those that move with the vibration of the ever morphing reality will always find endless opportunities of growth and expansion of life. Timbite lives and works in Atlanta, Ga, surrounded by many beautiful natural sceneries that tell a rich story of the land. Feel free to contact for freelance or collaboration.

She later on got into creating wearable art, and now specializes in T-Shirt Printing. Her love for both art and business is inspired by her dad who owns his own company. RoseBotz is a clash of worlds, where imagination comes to life inspired by fantasy and technology.

Ramblin' (wo)man Atlanta, Georgia Artist 🌻
I'm originally from Forsyth County, Georgia. I moved to Atlanta in 2015 to attend Georgia State University to pursue a BFA in drawing and paining.I often find myself in a moment thinking how that moment will never happen exactly the same way it did the first time. I often reflect on how I spend my time and with who I spend it with, because time is so limited and we remember moments in fragments.My work often reflects my own fragility, nostalgia and awareness of mortality through a series of conceptual and figurative works.
