Orchard Valley Ceramic Arts Guild



Joy Imai

I come from a long line of makers.  My mom, all my aunties, my dad they all made good things to eat and clothes, quilts and furniture to use.  Making was a way to get together and talk stories.  For the last 15 years I've focused on functional high fired work with a little touch of soda sprayed in the hot kiln. I like to take the form out of the round by faceting, squaring or oblonging. I mainly sell my work through my rented studio/retail shop at the Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park.  I also do some shows and sometimes open studio events.
