Gail Kendall is a ceramic artist whose work is influenced by European earthenware pottery and porcelain traditions from the 13th through 18th centuries. Kendall is an Emeritus Professor of Art at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
For many years my work has been influenced by various European pottery traditions, the hallmarks of which are elaborate form, a profusion of embellishment and decoration, a casualness in the making and the use of earthenware clays and low-fire glazes.
I intend my pots to be used in the presentation and containment of food, and to play a role in one of the most enjoyable of earthly delights..a good meal among friends.
