Most of Sandy Visse’s work is figurative and whimsical in nature expressing her love of animals and folk art. She makes one of a kind ceramic sculptures with a thrown base or multiple forms that are then altered and individualized through hand building. She uses several different clays and firing processes to achieve a desired end result. Although Sandy is self-taught, she gains inspiration and knowledge from different art or ceramic classes or workshops that she occasionally attends. She has been a member of the Oregon Potter’s Association for many years and exhibited her work in galleries in the Pacific Coast States as well as Idaho and Arizona.
