July’s featured artist is Lexi Shockey, who started at the guild two years ago and has been in love with clay since! She creates a variety of work including mugs, bowls, soap dispensers, jewelry bowls, vases and much more.
Lexi uses a decorating technique called slip-trailing to bring life to her pots. She decorates her pots with flowers and dots predominantly, but uses inspiration from the world around her to seek new creative ideas.
Lexi was first introduced to clay in an art class in high school during her senior year. She was then told about the guild and took an introduction to wheel throwing in June of 2016. She is continuing her love of ceramics in the fall at Shippensburg University, pursuing an art education degree.
