"I am inspired by the imperfection and simplicity of the natural world. Observing what is around you makes one realize there is a rhythm or pattern to it. Where I live, I feel the seasons so fiercely. I really appreciate that aspect of how I built my life." - Emma Kohlmann

"I feel deeply connected to the elements. I shape the earth using water, and use fire to finish the pieces. There is something deeply grounding, anchoring, and centering about working with these elements" - Nicole Hummel

Amy Kim Keeler
By Kate Sullivan
We caught up with fiber artist Amy Kim Keeler at her home in the Mojave Desert. A nurse by trade, we learned that Amy’s process of hand stitching allows her to let go of the anticipation and diligence it takes to tend to the needs of others. The patterns and shapes she makes in her art are rhythmic meditations and a form of deep self care. - The collection curated by Slow Roads for Gallery, Spring 2023 featured nine original pieces created from 2019-2021.

Victoria Morris
By Kate Sullivan
Victoria Morris describes her pottery practice in simple terms as “a ton of hard, physical labor.” What we gleaned from her work, and from our conversation with her, is that she’s a master craftsperson running a modern day family business. Over the last 30 years she has pushed herself diligently until specific forms and subtle, earthy colors have become second nature.
