The featured February artist for Hatch Art House is Madison ceramics artist, Aly Wheeler. Alison Wheeler grew up in the beautiful Driftless area of southwest Wisconsin. She spent most of her childhood outdoors, climbing trees and working on her parents small organic farm. So naturally, the outdoors is where a lot of her inspiration is found. Her pottery is playful, yet functional. Alison enjoys working with her hands, and finds that every piece created is an individual. She used slip trailing, carving, and hand building techniques to make each piece as unique as possible.
Aly will have her work showcased at Hatch Art House from February 1-29 with an artist reception Friday, February 12th from 6-9pm. Refreshments will be served.
