Gina Kling


 

A friend talked Gina into taking pottery lessons 18 years ago at a community center. She immediately fell in love with pottery. Then one day she was in an art gallery in Gig Harbor and saw raku pottery for the first time. The artist was Christopher Mathis. He was teaching hand built raku pottery. She immediately signed up for classes. She loved the unpredictability of raku.  You never knew what the end product would look like.  Would it have streaks of copper running through splashes of blues and green? Or  would it have more silver and reds? It was Christopher who encouraged her to begin selling her work.

She has been teaching hand built pottery herself on and off for the past seven years and has been with Proctor Art Gallery for the past three years.
