YB Wild Pottery – Handmade Pottery from the Adirondacks
Fluid, organic, and reflecting the dynamics of creating art from clay, my pieces provide me with emotions ranging from tranquility and uncertain expectation to wonder and joy. – Yvonne Wild
Yvonne Wild creates ceramic vessels without regard for speed and production. Each piece is unique, thoughtfully crafted, with an uncompromised attention to detail. Meticulous in her technique developed over the last 15 years, Yvonne does not strive toward repeatability in her forms. Her skills yield works that are artistic, beautifully thrown and undoubtedly one-of-a-kind.
From her modest home studio in Queensbury, NY, Yvonne has created a wide range of display and functional pottery. In Yvonne’s hands, functional works (food/liquid/oven safe) are also works of art. Functional bowls, vases. platters, pitchers and mugs are covered in expressive glaze combinations that add to the artistry of her forms. Display works include Raku and Saggar. Raku results are highly unpredictable and can reveal stunning results, sometimes with bold colors and glossy surfaces. On occasion, Yvonne will be inspired to create a Saggar piece. These display pieces utilize an ancient process that also yields unpredictable and unrepeatable results. The pieces are dramatic. Each Saggar draws a connection to the natural earth; at times resembling storms at sea, with lightning and rolling clouds. The uniqueness of these works is even more apparent when rotated. Each slight turn of the piece creates a different vision from which to reflect upon. Yvonne’s Saggars have gained acclaim throughout the region, and she has been recognized in the Post Star for her “Transcendental Pots”.
Yvonne has presented her work in galleries including LARAC’s Lapham Gallery in Glens Falls, NY, the Widlund Gallery in North Creek, NY, and in Giant Mountain Studio in Schroon Lake, NY. Yvonne’s works have also been offered for sale in a number of small venues in the Glens Falls, Lake George region in upstate New York. Yvonne’s works have found homes throughout the US, Europe, and in SE Asia.
Yvonne’s husband Mike has joined the business by creating the Original lake plates and platters. We currently produce over 20 different lakes and can create customized versions with inscriptions and dates for weddings or other special events. You can see our works at a number of different events around the Lake George area this summer. Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for updated event information.
