Wayne Snowbird Shields (Santa Clara)

About the Artist

Wayne is from Santa Clara, but his unique figurative pieces are very different from other Santa Clara pottery. His graceful and spiritual female figures have an elegant minimalism you might not expect from a big guy. And he displays his playful side with a series of clown and animal figures. A truly talented ceramic sculptor.
