DLH Pottery

Dorrie Sullivan
Lawrence, Kansas

My work incorporates stories, some whimsical, some reflecting dream and some quite literal. My most popular designs include the figure of a dog who I was lucky enough to have follow me around for a number of years. A natural little comedian, he often made me laugh with his antics. That was the start of my pottery that joined imagery from every day scenes, often combining the inside world with the outside scene, incorporating a sense of place and story.  In addition, I make forms which blend a vision of the natural world with that touch of whimsy.  My primary medium is porcelain clay that is fired to cone 5 for strength to withstand the demands of daily use, whether in the dishwasher or microwave.
