Sharon Stelter-Stoneware Sculpture
My husband and I call Sherwood, Wisconsin home. Sherwood is located in east central Wisconsin by High Cliff State Park and the northeastern shores of Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin’s largest lake. This is a beautiful part of the state and a constant inspiration for my work.
I have a degree in Art Education from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. After graduation I worked extensively on wheel thrown pottery, selling at Art Fairs and Galleries. When my children were young I concentrated on two dimensional work and did less with clay art. For many years I had ideas inside of me that I wanted to express. When I started working in clay again, a few years ago, I knew I had found the right medium to express these ideas. After a few failures I learned how to build the three-dimensional forms I had wanted to develop for so long. The zebra was my first successful animal and inspired the logo design for my business.
I am finding that clay has unlimited creative potential for me and I have much to explore yet. I thoroughly enjoy what I do. There are never enough hours in the day to create everything I would like. Often I feel like a child that is left alone all day to play, free to create whatever I imagine.
