Cheryl Mackey Smith

Medium: Ceramics

Booth #: GS14C

Artist bio: She and her husband, currently live in the mountains of Western North Carolina where she continues her hunt for rocks and twigs to gain inspiration for her clay pieces. Cheryl exhibits her fine art throughout the United States at art festivals and galleries. Her nature-based ceramic abstractions can be found in many private collections across the United States, and abroad. Cheryl works closely with designers who have installed her work in public spaces and private collections including Marriot Hotels, Seaside Banks, and corporate offices nationwide.

Artist Statement: I individually hand-form small porcelain and stoneware pieces.The pieces are all kiln-fired, many are also pit-fired to add the depth of color from the flames. I create the organic compositions by arranging the small ceramic pieces on archival backings and framing in deep, shadow-boxed frames.
