25 Dec Hosanna White
Hosanna is a pigment forager, earthenware potter, and earth artist of Irish-American descent living on Kalapuya land in the foothills of the Cascades in Western Oregon.
Through the closeness of working with the clays and stones of the landscape where she is a guest, she has been drawn into the narratives they reflect about the impacts of colonization, as well as the enoughness of natural limits. Digesting and transforming grief, entitlement, and complacency have become the inner foundations of her work and purpose, among relationship building and magic making with her materials.
Hosanna has been dedicated to working with wild clays for seven years, since first learning about pit fire pottery at Spirit Weavers in 2016. The unique personalities of each clay, their feel in the hands, and the elemental magic of working with the earth to create beautiful forms has completely captivated her.
Hosanna will be sharing Earthenware Pottery.
