Meet the artist Reiko Uchytil and see her Sculptured pottery -My journey with clay has been a life long one, I grew up in a potters studio. I am a second-generation potter. I find myself blessed and fortunate to study under master ceramicist, Steve and Miky Cunningham. (Aka Dad and Mom) I began doing shows in 2013 as an emerging artist at the Des Moines Arts Festival. I studied at the University of Iowa, receiving a BA in Health and Human Physiology, BA in Psychology, and a minor in Dance. But through it all I maintained my passion and love for art, particularly ceramics. I continue to explore the endless possibilities and versatility of clay. My current body of work is inspired by elements from the North American prairie. Motifs consisting mostly of hares (rabbits), birds, flowers, and insects. I have recently been playing with new animal images and expanding on more varieties of flowers and birds.
