Whitney Gill creates art and pottery from her home and studio in Bowdoin, Maine. She also works for Maine Crafts Association and Shop Maine Craft as an arts administrator of local arts programming.
With a focus on function, Whitney throws white clay on the wheel into simple forms and decorates with bold brushstrokes, stencils, and sgraffito. Her surfaces hold intuitive movement and gentle repetition with hints of bright color. She works in small series and sells them at local craft shows, markets, Maine galleries, and annual open studios in the spring and fall at her home in Bowdoin, Maine.
Whitney has always admired the artist's way of life and the creative magic that can be found in the solitude of rural places. She seeks and finds inspiration in rushing streams and underwater reflections, stacked stones, mossy logs, vivid sunsets, rolling hills and long shadows, exploring the ways our bodies interact with these special moments in a landscape that is ever changing.
