Cannon Beach galleries showcase ceramic arts that range from purely decorative works to carefully handcrafted functional pieces for your table. Cannon Beach artist Jay Stewart's studio and gallery, House of the Potter, features his hand-thrown stoneware pottery including functional and decorative one-of-a-kind pieces. At DragonFire Gallery, William Richards' table lamps combine sculptural ceramic bases with handmade shades. Walt Bensman creates ceramic wall landscapes and vessels with wooden handles. The gallery also features brightly painted ceramic boxes with bird, floral, fruit or vegetable motifs by Lynn Gandolfi. White Bird Gallery features the work of more than 25 ceramic artists including Randolph Silver's hand constructed vessels reflecting time and industry; sculptural and wall pieces by Karl Yost; and Boni and Dave Deal's raku pieces with Northwest floral and fauna motifs. Northwest By Northwest Gallery features work by several of the Northwest's most successful ceramic artists including decorative wall pieces and sculptural teapots with richly colored matte glazes by Patrick Horsley. Natalie Warrens' bowls, vases and teapots are colorfully decorated and feature a highly glazed finish. Original ceramic masks and spiritual figures by noted Native American artist Lillian Pitt are also featured along with ceramic artists Sequoia Miller and Hiroshi Ogawa.
