Summer falls by Theresa Williams
Theresa Williams is a Tlingit Alaska Native who grew up in Edmonds. She is a certified Native Tribal Artist with the Tlingit and Haida Central Council of Indian Tribes of Alaska. 

Her paintings have been shown in the juried exhibits at both the Edmonds Arts Festival and Shoreline Arts Festival. 

She has also participated in the ShoreLake Arts 6x6 Art fundraising event. Examples of her work include Jumping for Joy (a breaching Orca), Summer Falls (Snoqualmie Falls), and Cannon Beach Beauty (Haystack Rock), all of which show her use of bold and vibrant color.

“I love when people are looking at my work and come up to me and tell me ‘I’d love to go to that place!’” 

So often Theresa has been to that ‘place’ as she typically uses her own photos as references. She is especially inspired by the majestic Pacific Northwest Mountains, Puget Sound, the gorgeous sunsets over the Olympics, the beaches, lakes, and varied wildlife of the majestic Pacific Northwest.

Pottery by Diane Kallaway
Diane Kallaway is a Shoreline resident and among her many interests she has collected pottery her whole life. It wasn’t until seven years ago that she finally made the decision to make some herself. 

Self-taught and dedicated to constant learning and experimenting, she finds ways to express all her passions through ceramic arts. 

“There really are no limits and the variety drives my creativity.”

Hand decorating wheel thrown forms with original carvings or leaves and a wide variety of stoneware glazes make each piece unique. 

Her love of birds inspires hand sculpted and glazed nuthatches, sparrows, and loons; hand painted wild bird eggs and nests made from nature. 

Her love of food and pottery meet at a delicious crossroad as she considers roasted carrots in a cobalt blue bowl or a wild rice and kale soup in a wide rimmed bowl of speckled green. 

 All the work is mid-fire stoneware, applied with lead-free glazes, oven proof, and dishwasher safe. This is Diane’s first public showing and is excited to share the results of her passion for all things clay.
