GARINE ARAKELIAN


Garine Arakelian

Gariné Arakelian is a potter who specializes in sgraffito and slip-trailing techniques of redware. Her work is based on styles and techniques she has found in her researches. Her research allows her to identify many of the classic American Sgraffito potters by recognizing their important techniques and style variations that the casual observer might take for granted.

Arakelian uses slips that turn gold under the lead-free glaze and stay true to color, and she constantly refines her wares to explore new areas of design. Her collaborations with her husband, Rick Hamelin of Pied Potter Hamelin, include decorating his thrown wares and creating the new website of www.americanredware.com as as a resource for forums and collections about American redware.

When one of her patron's commented, "Thank you for sharing your art with us as you have become part of our home." she was inspired not only to continue making her beautiful wares but to help others learn more about redware's rich history.
