edgehill pottery - ceramics and jewelry created by Barbara Schwartzberg

Barbara Schwartzberg has been fascinated by clay since  taking pottery classes in 1975, when she was living in West Lafayette, Indiana. She joined the Colorado Potters Guild in 1999 following a move to Denver, Colorado.  She and her husband relocated to Sonoma County, California in 2015. Barbara  quickly immersed herself in the diverse art milieu of the area. She is a key participant in the Sonoma Community Center Ceramics Program. She enjoys making functional pottery using either porcelain or stoneware clay. She views the clay as a canvas which she decorates in a whimsical, ironical fashion. She likes making jewelry, using precious metal clay or a kintsugi technique utilizing broken pottery pieces.  “Fashion over Function” is a dominant theme in her work.

In July, 2019, Barbara spent 3 weeks at the Menlo Studio in Jingdezhen, China, taking part in a studio immersion course of all things porcelain.  What an experience! She has since traveled to Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea. She will visit Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in August, 2024.

Please see  her many collections for new and exciting pots!
