Orchard Valley Ceramic Arts Guild



Jan Schachter

I enjoy making pots for everyday use; each is a subtle variation of a form - usually thrown in a series.  I am a perfectionist (as much as the process allows) and am constantly in search of the perfect surface and ideal form while striving to create pots that have life and vitality.  

I have a casserole in the permanent collection of the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC.; 2002 - Best Functional, State of Clay, Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, Lexington, MA; 2000 - Purchase Award, Focus on Function, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Minneapolis, MN; California Design 2002, San Francisco, CA.
