White Sgraffito Vase-Timothy Weber
With a cream and white color scheme, the beauty in this peice comes in the juxtaposition of raised designs. Timothy Weber crafted clay into this exquisite stand-alone peice. The vase stands 9" tall with a daimater of 3", making it the perfect vase to fill with long-stemmed roses on a certain February date.
A native of Boise, Weber received his first professional craft opportunity serving as an apprentice to potter Charles Counts in Rising Fawn, GA. After completing his apprenticeship in 1973, he enrolled in Troy State University in Alabama and, while there, helped develop a production pottery studio in Brundidge, AL. He graduated from Troy State with honors in 1976, earning a bachelor’s degree in studio art. After graduation, he served as an Alabama Council for the Arts resident artist for the city schools of Troy, Decatur, and Mobile. In 1982, Weber became resident potter at the Kentuck Art Center, located near Tuscaloosa, and he held that position for 10 years before moving to Nashville and joining the staff of the Tennessee Arts Commission. During his time in Nashville, Weber maintained a full-time, working studio and exhibited his work both regionally and nationally. Timothy Weber is a master potter and former director of visual arts, craft and media for the Tennessee Arts Commission. Weber currently is working from his studio in Nashville, TN
