Bowls and mugs aren't the only pieces that clay artist Terri Cody creates in her Ritzville, Washington studio, but they are some of the more amusing. Many of the designs come with unexpected footing-â€"duck's feet, for example.

Brilliant colors and wild patterns applied to loosely defined forms are Cody Pottery signatures. The sense of humor in Cody's low-fire earthenware is intentional. A good laugh is a welcomed artistic outcome.

Implications - Terri Cody has been selling her amazing ceramic pieces since 1988 through her own business. She hand makes and hand paints everything. She likes to underglaze with what is called Scraffito design and finishes the product with a clear food-safe glaze.
