Ceramics / Photography
SANDY MILLER is a ceramic and visual artist in Cookeville, TN. Her obsessively carved ceramic work reflects her years of observation of nature as a (former) scuba instructor for 20 years; a graphic designer; a photographer and a visual artist. She photographed small aquatic animals like corals, sponges, invertebrates, and the underwater terrain. She fell in love with minute textures and patterns found in the aquatic world. Now land-based, Sandy photographs nature’s flora and geographical formations, carving and impressing these and marine life qualities into her work. Her functional and decorative ceramics are obsessively ornate and colorful, which was an evolution of trial and error, taking years of experimentation to develop. Her glazes are all food-microwave-and dishwasher-safe.
