Christie Clarke creates one of a kind slab built pottery and necklaces that evoke thoughts of ancient objects yet have an unmistakably contemporary sensibility. Each piece is textured and colored with underglaze and glazes that create vivid colorscapes. Some vessels have additional touches of gold leaf. Her work has been exhibited in several group showings of the MN Women Ceramic Association in the Twin Cities, the Northfield Fine Craft Collective, the Anderson Center for the Arts in Red Wing MN, the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport and is in the permanent collection of the Goldstein Museum of design at the University of Minnesota. Her work is sold at the Grand Hand Gallery in St. Paul, Fleur-de-lis gallery in Faribault and the Northfield Arts Guild in Northfield.
Christie has a piece in the Minnesota state fair fine arts building. No State fair this year but there will be the physical art show in the building and open to the public.
