emerging artist: Noelle Horsfield

I was raised on a farm in Southern Ohio where I spent my time reading books, playing in the woods and creating things to amuse myself.  I have always known that I needed to make art, so after high school, I attended a variety of colleges, all majoring in fine arts, as well as spending time at Haystack Mountain School of Art.  My love of making things led me to try my hand at a wide variety of mediums before I finally fell in love with clay.

When my husband Scott and I married in 1997, we decided we wanted to experience living in different areas of the country, so we moved first to Northwest Indiana, then to Maine, then to Massachusetts, and, due to family needs, finally back to Ashland, Kentucky, which is near the homes of both of our parents.  With hard work and time, we transformed our basement into a functional and inspiring ceramics studio where I now spend my days creating beautiful pottery and ceramic art.

Want to be featured as an emerging artist on musing? All you have to do is send me some images, a brief write up if you'd like, and a website if you have it to If you could put emerging artist in the subject header of the email so it doesn't get lost in my spam folder that would be great. Thanks!

I do like this work. I wonder what her processes are? Decals?
