Four potters working together in our studio and gallery in the River District as River District Potters.
Sara Adams creates earthenware and stoneware pots by hand building. She loves to feel the clay take shape in her hands. Sara studied pottery with Jeanne Drevas, where these four potters converged; Jeanne inspired my colorful pots. Sara worked at Glen Echo Pottery, DC and currently enjoys working at Guy Mason Recreation Center. She learned throwing pots from Susan Jacobs at Eastern Market Pottery, DC.
Susan Hornbostel likes to make things including silkscreens and etchings, gardens in DC, costumes for the RAAC Community Theatre and pottery at River District Arts. She creates a wide variety of forms, from ikebana containers, to white pulled bone containers to impromptu small animals.
Doris Jones likes to play with clay. My play is clay pots that are functional, whimsical and sculptural. Her latest interest is teapots. Her pigs have been quite popular; there is not a pig left in our studio for sale.
Nancy Nord creates wheel-thrown and hand built pottery. She paints her pots and uses the clay as a canvas for fruits, vegetables, and other culinary treats. She has worked at Glen Echo Pottery, DC; studied at Penland School of Craft, NC and with Rappahannock potters Suzanne Zylonis and Jeanne Drevas.
