Owlstone Clayworks is the embodiment of artist Sharon Gunthel’s fifty plus years of working in ceramics. Principally working in pottery, producing beautiful handmade tile is her latest venture in clay. Sharon received her BFA in Ceramics and Sculpture from the Maryland Institute of Fine Art in Baltimore, Maryland. After several years of working as an illustrator for TextArt Studio, she established a small home based studio and began a decades long mentorship with her good friend and accomplished potter Barbara S. Gordon. Her studio, Fired-Earth, began realizing success as she sold work and participated in art shows. As she pursued her passion in clay, she also studied the discipline of oriental brush painting. Sharon has now fused the two arts together, combining her love for ceramics and her passion for painting. With her children and a small staff, she started Owlstone Clayworks and looks forward to helping you find the perfect artisanal tiles for your home.
