Denise O'Connell Joyal is the Adjunct Professor of Ceramics at Wilson College and a graduate of Hood College with a Master of Fine Arts degree in Ceramic Arts. She says of her work, "Like sunlight passing over the landscape, fire and soda vapor flow across the wares adding warm colors and permanently illuminating the vessels’ surfaces. Swirling gases surround the molten forms, moving through and around them, seeking escape. The fleeting journey of the flame is captured on forms representing the artist’s perception of light moving through time. Inlaid patterns enhance the surface of the forms offering added visual interest, keeping the work fresh and alive."
