Tina Curry

A clay sculpture artist for over twenty-seven years. There is a fascination with trying to express nonverbal emotion through clay, especially with human portraits. Many of my animal sculptures take on more of a whimsical or humorous spirit, my equine and abstract nomadic forms present a more calm/fluid presence. All of my sculptures are handbuilt, so each has its own personality and any imperfections just add character. I utilize alternative firing techniques like horsehair, saggar, naked raku, pit and barrel firing for finishing my pieces.

I was honored to have a solo exhibition sponsored by the Tennessee Arts Commission in Nashville, October-November, 2018.

Memberships include: Southern Highlands Craft Guild, Foothills Craft Guild, Terra Madre Women in Clay, American Crafts Council, Oak Ridge Art Center, and Arts and Culture Alliance of Knoxville.

Artist Statement
Being able to create a sculptural piece with my hands is truly a spiritual process. Part of me will always live in that piece no matter where it finds a home. That is why I continue to create and share my love of art.
