About the artist, Dawn Dalto:

The need to work and create with my hands has been a life long driving force. As a child I learned needlework from my grandmothers. This skill later led to working with needlewoven beadwork. When introduced to clay in 2006 I merged the problem solving and attention to detail of these mediums into my work with clay.

My ceramic work is both decorative and functional. . Forms are mathematically configured with attention to their structure and use, both as individual objects and part of a larger grouping. I consider how the theme of each object will interact to form a family grouping with another.

Creating both decorative and functional work allows me the opportunity to explore in different ways. I have the luxury of creating designs that will be purely for decorative enjoyment as well as the challenge of how to incorporate some of those same themes into objects that will be used in daily life.
