About Deborah Harris
Deborah Harris has been a full-time studio potter in Chapel Hill, North Carolina since 1997. Her work is influenced by many factors, especially world cultures, human movement, and living in a state so exceptionally rich in pottery history.
Her work begins on the potter’s wheel with porcelain as her first choice for a clay body. Texture is achieved using various ribs, carving tools, handmade stamps, or found objects. The work is bisque fired, glazed, and decorated. The ware is then fired a second time in either a soda or gas kiln using a reduction atmosphere.
Deborah is continually refining her techniques and experimenting with new ideas in hopes that her work will continue evolving through clay’s infinite potential.
