Welcome to my Gallery
Ready, Set… FIRE
Ready To Fire
Most of my work is glazed in a clear coat which goes on Opaque like this photo. Once fired, these pieces will be alive with color!!!
I love making all kinds of fun yet functional things. Like these coffee mugs waiting for their handles. Pretty soon they will be festooned with flowers, butterflies, and anything else I think would be fun
Every day is an adventure in my studio so my pottery gallery will be ever changing
As an artist I have always thought I needed to have a Signature Look, a very specific style, that when you saw it you would say “Oh… that is a Dani Montoya”.
So I started to look for me “signature look”
Once I found my footing with the making of pots I delved into establishing the look, the color, the art of my pottery. It had to be fun, it had to be colorful and it had to be me.
So I started to explore adding in color and movement. I found that just glazing a piece was easy but it did not fulfill the artistic side of me. I began experimenting with underglazes which allowed me more control over the artwork. I played with using these wonderful glazes like a watercolor, using soft washes of color as well as slip trailing for emphasis. The world opened up for me artistically and I am excited to see where I go from here.
