Gabrielle Koza is a ceramic artist based in Tempe, Arizona.
Working with clay helps me feel grounded and connected to the earth. I am constantly exploring the balance between beauty and function in ceramic forms. I love the surprises that come with the transformation of materials from firing. It's not about complete control. Besides being intriguing to the eye, a well made ceramic piece begs to be picked up, held, and used. There's a lot of serendipity that affects the final result. The combination of clay, glaze, firing, and many small variables makes each piece unique.
