Roslyn Nuesch, owner of Two Owls Pottery Studio in Crozet, is a Virginia native whose inspiration comes from nature, her mother, and her Native American heritage. Her creative side came out late in life and is ever growing, but her pottery remains functional and for everyday use. Creating a form from a ball of clay on a wheel has intrigued her ever since she was a little girl and her mother took her to a pottery studio in North Carolina. She loves that a simple ball of clay can be transformed into a creation that is visually, aesthetically, and tactually pleasing. Her utilization of glaze, texture, carving, and altering a pot in various ways reminds us how the clay was once very pliable before reaching its final destination as stoneware.
