CYNTHIA ANDERSEN - DONNA KELLER
Paleolithic Cave Art from Lascaux, near Montignac, France.
For over 12 years, Cynthia Andersen painted commercial billboards in Southern California; an experience which would later serve as the foundation for her inspiration. Whilst pursuing her undergraduate degree in Fine Arts at the ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California, she visited the Lascaux Caves in France and was inspired by the beauty of the paleolithic artwork decorating the caves. "The cave's beauty never left my mind, it is a part of my soul." she later wrote in her portfolio's diary.
When Cynthia began creating what was to become her vision of the paleolithic horse, Donna Keller began experimenting with temperature variations and an array of glazing techniques. Soon, they discovered, after much toil and travail, a unique combination to achieve beautiful, vibrant results.
The American-made, lead-free glazes are both microwave and dishwasher safe. This creates practical pottery, dishware, tiles, furniture, and bathroom sinks capable of everyday use. The versatility makes these ceramics a promising collection.
