Functional Funk by Cheri Pollack

"I've been fascinated with clay for as long as I can remember.....from mud pies to Functional Funk, it's been a wonderful journey!! It's a thrill working with clay because the possibilities are endless! When I design a piece of pottery, I let the clay speak to me. Each piece is a unique, inspired creation. My studio is in Knoxville, Tennessee where I live with my husband and three spirited boys...."

"...I use only lead-free and food safe glazes for my functional pieces. I invite you to infuse my Functional Funk with your own energy and vision. It is an honor to share my creations with you. Enjoy!"
