About Kathy Sandberg
Kathy Sandberg has always enjoyed creating art with clay. Oil painting and sculpture were her primary forms of artistic expression for many years.
Kathy's work has also included pencil, pastels, acrylics, and Japanese watercolors.
Pottery as an art form was added to her artistic palette 45 years ago, and has been her passion ever since.
She currently produces functional and creative pottery at her Plymouth, Michigan studio and at the Village Potter's Guild.
She is one of the founding members of the 25 year-old Guild, where she has taught several years of adult classes.
She has also taught a pottery mentorship program at the Plymouth Community Art Council for middle and high school students.
"Teaching brings out a new dimension in pottery for me. The joy of watching and guiding students when they are creating something they are proud of is truly illuminating"
Her current expressions in clay are the result of years of study and experimentation.
She feels that all aspects of pottery have their intrigue, from the formation and the altering of shape, to the combination of textures and colors.
Kathy is constantly striving to enhance her creative design both in form and embellishment.
Producing all facets of pottery, including functional pieces, sleek sculpture forms, wall hangs, jewelry, yard art, "coffee table art" and raku are of interest to her.
Kathy has participated in invitational shows and has been juried into many art shows throughout Michigan.
Her work has been exhibited at local galleries and she has received the honor of "Best in Clay" and "Best of Show" at art shows.
