Red Chair Studio Clay
modern ceramics & paintings inspired by a lifetime love of nature
Christine Herron has designed original, hand made products for her company Red Chair Studio for over twenty six years. She studied illustration at Rhode Island School of Design where she honed her eye for detail and developed her love of color and form. In all of her creative endeavors, it is the uncommon use of color and love of the natural world that remains central to Christine's work. Her work has taken many forms over the years. Hand painted garden products, fiber reactive dyed silk, beaded gemstone and leather jewelry, egg tempera, watercolor and oil painting and hand built clay vessels are all part of her creative output. New materials always present an exciting challenge for this creative spirit. Currently she is busy creating various functional pots, painting and teaching classes in hand building pottery as well as watercolor. Her hand built pots are like the rest of her work, colorful, quirky and reflecting her love of nature as does her botanical watercolors.
