Playing With Fire

   For Gena VanDyke,  working as a Potter is the ultimate career choice.  She took her first Ceramic Arts class in 1986 just for fun, and like so many others became hooked.  Little did she know in those early days where this passion would lead, nor how many wonderful people she’d meet along the way as her skill set grew. 

   She now operates her own studio out of home in Charlotte, NC.  Most often you will find her exhibiting her work at juried Fine Art Shows throughout the Carolinas.  Feel free to call or email for purchasing info:
