Shelly Cubarney, Zelienople, PA
I'm a fly-fisher. I love the colors a stream has. I'm inspired by what I see in the rocks and the water in the streams I fish.
Shelly's inspiration takes shape in a range of porcelain creations, from delicate wearables to sturdy birdhouses and useful apple bakers. All are finished with glazes that include Clean Creek's manganese oxide for a rich sparkle. Her studio brims with a dizzying array of projects in progress, each more intriguing than the last; all crafted with care and patience.
It amazes me that you can clean the streams and bring back the life after so much pollution. It's amazing that Stream Restoration has taken this on and is doing it so generously. At every show I attend, I tell people the Clean Creek story. It's important that we focus on our resources or they won't be here much longer.
