Debra Fritts has been a juror for the Celebration of Clay in the past so we are fortunate to have her back to do this again for the 2017 Celebration of Clay. See more information about the Celebration of Clay exhibit on our special exhibit website: www.celebrationofclay.com. Below is some information about Debra.
Debra is a studio artist working in Abiquiu, New Mexico. She received her undergraduate degree in Art Education from the University of Tennessee and continued graduate studies in ceramic sculpture, painting and printmaking. Debra currently conducts figurative sculpture workshops at her studio, and master classes nationally and internationally.
Debra has national recognition for her work in ceramic sculpture through invitational exhibitions and awards, museum exhibitions and collections, gallery representation, private collections and publications. Her one of a kind sculptures are hand-built and multiple fired with a painterly glazed surface. The work is a continuous story of awareness and the celebration of daily living.
