Sonya Meeker creates mostly functional work using porcelain and several stoneware claybodies, most of which are wheel throw, and some are altered and some are handbuilt. She glazes in a variety of colors and appreciates how they might compliment different meals and moods. Sonya aims to create a lightweight piece that feels at home in one’s hand and on the lips. She often incorporates images of leaves and animals, windows and swirls, but most of her work is fairly simple. Her education and work life is in physiology, but to balance that, she took classes and volunteered at the Baltimore Clayworks, eventually becoming a Resident Artist. She now works in a former motorcycle shop at home.
