In her bio Ester Lipscomb describes herself as “a studio potter working in northeast Georgia.” A humble understatement from such a sophisticated ceramicist!
Perhaps having a close connection to the earth, or owning a pet dog named Loretta Lynn is what grounds this dynamic artist.
Lipscomb muses “Living in these beautiful mountains gives me the opportunity to enjoy the daily flow of nature and the seasons. I am inspired to create objects that I hope are part of the landscape.” True to their maker’s sensibilities her work has a natural ebb and flow taking on bulbous organic forms.
I was recently introduced to Lipscomb’s work at the Emerging Artists exhibit – Museum of Arts and Sciences (Macon, Georgia). This annual event features 7 contemporary artists from around the Southeast whose work is of exceptional caliber. Over the next few weeks, I’ll spotlight their art.
