David & Margaret Nelson
Oregon artists David and Margaret Nelson began their journey into the world of ceramics with the production of functional stoneware. Before long, the dazzling beauty of crystals in the nature inspired them to study crystalline glazing on porcelain.
Time and experimentation yielded the sought-after results. From the jewel-like appearance of each finished piece, the “Jewelry of Pottery” was born. Few ceramic artists work in this medium due to the difficulty and laborious processes required to produce these beautiful and unique pieces. Every firing ends with a myriad of surprises - unpredictable and enchanting in its loveliness. Though worthy of display as an object d’arte, each item is also fully functional for use at table, or as a vase for fresh flowers.
The Nelsons have been with Mossy Creek Pottery since 2020.
