Sandy Simon

Sandy Simon is a studio potter and in 1994 opened TRAX Gallery in Berkeley, CA to provide greater representation for ceramicists dedicated to utility. Simon keeps her forms minimal, thus highlighting the landscape of a form, the detailed addition of wire handles, or subtle alterations including cutting, piercing, seeds, and thread. Her pots feel modern, yet familiar and comforting. “I want my pots to express spontaneity and suggest use, creative ways to display and serve food”.
Sandy was a student at the University of Minnesota, Mpls., in the late 60’s studying under Warren MacKenzie and Curt Hoard. Classmates such as Mark Pharis, Wayne Branum, Michael Simon,and Randy Johnston are now known for their careers in clay. “At the time we were students, the energy in the pot shop was at an all time high. Music, art, poetry, and the free speech movement took root , along with brown bread and healthy food. For us, clay provided many answers. Making something by hand found an audience, and personal values, once again, had a time to flourish. Today,with the internet, the pace is much faster. Ways of doing things have disappeared. However, people are still looking for “integrity” in their lives. They want to feel their “roots” . Again, clay provides this. Clay brings us to honor the earth and the things which are made from it. A pot made by hand suggests the spirit of the potter, and the thought & considerations that goes into the making of it reveals the energy of the human condition.”
