I cannot remember a time that I wasn’t making things. It has always been “me”. I have been a potter for many years, and now I also am painting, to my delight. I paint mostly in acrylic and love that for the color – yes, the colors. With ceramics you don’t get to see the colors until you are finished.

Ha Austin specializes in two very different types of pottery. Her hand-thrown crystalline porcelain is created with a special glaze creating breath-taking frost-like patterns – an abstract pattern of the unexpected. She also creates a separate line of tableware, based on the 1700’s technique of “Sgraffito” (Italian for “scratch”). Plates and bowls come alive with figurative images of roosters, owls, fish and leaves

I have been working with clay for over 25 years. Raku is a great love of mine- the surprise and spontaneity of the process feeds my need for instant gratification. Alternately, I enjoy the depth and flexibility that stoneware provides as a means to create functional items people use and touch every day. It is a process that teaches me patience. For the person purchasing a pottery piece, it is usually a thoughtful process. How will this fit in my home, my life…to be a part of that is extremely rewarding.
