Functional

All these pieces are microwave, dishwasher and oven safe. Do not use on stovetop or preheat the oven, as they may crack. Clay is an excellent insulator and will keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold. They are all free of lead, bariuim, lithium.... so they are food safe.

Jazz Guys


Jazz Guys
These are inspired by the jazz and swing era of the 1940's. They are stylized characters with instruments reflecting the mood of the music. My grandpa was a jazz trumpeter so of course those are my favorites.

Raku



RAKU

Welcome!

Hi!
Welcome to my blog. My name is Nancy Fairbanks.

I've been a self employed artist for 20 years. My work is displayed in many galleries as well as art shows year round. I also teach many workshops and Artist-in-Schools programs.

I make both functional and decorative pottery. A few of my favorite pieces are the goddesses, cats, and raku.
I finally got my daughter to set up a page on the internet. Here I will display pictures of my newest pieces, my show schedule, and ordering information. Please have a look around and enjoy!!
From my hands to yours...
~Nancy

The Goddesses



The Goddesses
The goddess series represents all women. There is a bit of goddess in every one of us.
Each of these ladies has a different moon and personality which we can relate to.
