Virginia Piazza Pottery creates wheel-thrown pottery in porcelain and stoneware.

“For the past 20 years my work has centered on functional ware, mostly porcelain, in a limited glaze palette. I have mostly focused on simple surfaces, using one or two harmonizing glazes. (Recently I have returned to embellishing some of my wares with wax-resist designs, sgraffito, and inlay.)

What remains constant is my hope that the work will continue to speak to the user and to find a special place in everyday life.

I have worked from a studio in my home in Beacon, NY since 2001. Prior to that, I lived in Brooklyn, and maintained studios in communal workshops in the Gowanus and Williamsburg areas.” Virginia Piazza
