Karin Kraemer & Pat Joyelle

Cafe Artist

 KARIN KRAEMER & PAT JOYELLE

I grew up in Minneapolis and received my BFA in glass working from St. Cloud State University in 1986. After blowing glass in Colorado, Minnesota and Wisconsin, I moved to West Virginia, where I began to make clay work and pit firing it in my yard, and was hooked. I moved to Carbondale, Illinois and did graduate work in Ceramics, there. I received my MFA in 1996, moved to Victoria, British Columbia and spent two years making pots, gardening and traveling. Duluth became my new home in 1998.

 

My studio, the Duluth Pottery has moved to 1924 W. Superior Street in Duluth, smack in the middle of the new Lincoln Park Crafts District on the same block as Frost River, Bent Paddle Brewery, and the new OMC Smokehouse! We have a beautiful fine clay gallery and have more room for making pots and events of all sorts.

 

I enjoy working in pottery and tile, because they bring art to the table and every day use. Clay is a great medium for expression. I love that I exist in a long line of potters through history and a reflection of our culture.

 

My work is Maiolica, an in-glaze hand painted tin glaze technique. I make functional pots and tiles that are meant to celebrate the day. My individual wall pieces and compositions of tiles are hand built and decorated with colorful, loose brushwork.

 

I draw from every day scenes and objects for my imagery. Capturing the color and movement of the moment is my aim…the flowers in my garden trembling in a slight breeze and the sun glowing through them, or the light coming in the window and lighting the room.

 

For years, Pat Joyelle has been working in my studio, painting Duluth grill cups with me, as well as making her own beautiful tiles. She is a fabric designer, fine clothes maker, jeweler and much more. I am so happy to be able to show our work together here.

PAT JOYELLE My tiles are a celebration of color – in flowers, leaves, branches and twigs. Majolica is the perfect vehicle for this celebration. The intensity, variety and flatness of the glaze inspires my paintings and encourages me to explore a variety of subjects in the natural world. It is a joyous experience!
