As is the case for many serious clay artists, Judy Musicant discovered pottery after embarking on her “day job” as an attorney. But from her first touch of clay in 1978, she discovered a passion for making pottery that has never abated.
Judy creates functional pottery, meaning pottery to drink from, pour from, bake with, eat from, hold, caress, love to look at and make a part of everyday life. She works primarily on the potter’s wheel, but because clay is so plastic and forgiving, she finds it almost impossible to throw a symmetrical object and leave it at that. She is forever poking, pulling, prodding, cutting or otherwise altering the thrown pot in some fashion, which is what creates a body of work that reflects her vision of art for everyday life.
