Nancy Quigley’s pottery is one-of-a-kind, high-fired stoneware.
She has been an active member of Riverdale Art Association in New York City and of Nelson Artists’ Gallery, in the Monadnock region of New Hampshire, as well as Mamaroneck (NY) Artists’ Guild. She has participated in many juried shows in the New York area, and her prize-winning work can be found in numerous private collections.
Studies with Linda Navarro Ferri, of Artists & Craftsmen, include both wheel and hand-building techniques, both functional and art pottery, as well as Silvermine and other workshops. Nancy is exploring the creation of masks and abstract ceramic wall hangings.
Shaping and designing in clay, an organic, deeply satisfying medium, allows for both sculptural and painterly approaches.
My medium is clay, a natural, organic and deeply responsive ‘canvas’. Some pieces are combinations of functional and art pottery. I am exploring the creation of masks and abstract ceramic sculptures and wall hangings.
My work tends to reflect my strong response to colorations and designs from the art of many cultures. Another shaping influence: the incredible variety of forms and designs in nature.
