Diane Walters: She Lives in the Mountains

Diane Walters with pottery 

Diane Walters is a lifelong potter with 42 years throwing experience and is the owner of eARTh Studio in Nelson, BC.

She has extensive experience working with low, medium and high fire clays and glazes, hand building, sculpture, and wheel techniques. Diane regularly participates in workshops for advanced potters and attends the annual National Council of Ceramic Educators conference.

Her work is displayed in galleries in Alberta and BC. She is a member of the BC Potters Guild.

Her fascination with the earth's sedimentary layers and mountainous landscapes led her to explore this theme in her "womanscape" basins and tectonic platters.

These works depict geological form and movement using natural oxides and sculptural formations which call out the message that the earth is alive and she is holding us at the table.

Her pottery line is often undergoing its own metamorphosis and she is currently exploring liminal spaces, capturing the line between emptiness and emergence in form an d colour.
