A native of Pennsylvania, Bill grew up in the midst of the Allegheny National Forest. As a sportsman, he spent much time in the woods and learned to enjoy and appreciate nature. Nature’s beauty is incomparable and irresistible. He learned to recognize and appreciate how nature creates its own grace and art over time. Using time as it‘s palette, nature provides the unimaginable character that provides Bill with the opportunity to bring a weathered aging piece of wood, or an old structure to life.
Victoria Kavalerov came to the USA 20 years ago and now lives in Pennsylvania. She was introduced to ceramics by a new friend and discovered an unknown happy “self”. All these years she was associated with Art Centers in the Philadelphia suburbs. Making mostly functional ceramics, she is trying to provoke the viewer to make up images for each piece: a summer breeze in the forest, the stormy sky over a city, a Roman general, a peasant girl. Her process of making pottery is an ability to enjoy the creative process freely, without fear of doing wrong, with absolute certainty in success.
