When I was introduced to clay about 17 years ago, I knew I had found my perfect medium, in
the tactile world of ceramics.
Nature in her repeated universal forms is my muse, and I am incredibly fortunate to live in
beautiful surroundings that inspire me daily.
I hope the beauty I see translates into my work and inspires sense of wonder for the user.
Paul Zoldahn, Host
I began working in clay at St. Cloud State University while earning my BS degree, from
1972 to1978. My potters’ heart developed and grew through those studies.
With each kiln opening I look forward to seeing the results of thick clay slip application
and interactions of new glazes and glaze combinations on my pots.
I want my heartfelt work to be enjoyed for its aesthetic beauty during everyday use.

I am an artist expressing myself in the medium of stone, drawing inspiration from antiquity. Synthesizing natural and Gaelic influences, I explore methods of preserving an ancient art form, while staying relevant in contemporary times. I have an affinity with the abstract and symbolic elements that seemingly transcend time.
Natalija Walbridge (Dock 5 Duluth), Guest
In 2014, Natalija Walbridge decided to follow her dream of working as a full-time artist. Going all in, Natalija started by converting her 900 sq ft home into a studio with screen printing equipment and two industrial sewing machines. Each Dock 5 bag is created from start to finish by Natalija and is infused with a passion for functional details and embellished with original art..

I experiment with sensory environments. Nostalgia and memories and the natural world play a big role in my work. My work is multifaceted and multimedia, a dissection of ideas that might be considered strange, obsolete or forgotten in everyday life. I make a space for moments that have no words. I create an alternate universe in which these ideas are pushed to their limits and the process, execution and evolution carry equal weight as the initial concept.
