Peggy Quinn opened her clay studio in East Springfield, PA in the fall of 2020. Her selection of artwork is on sale in the showroom just outside of her personal studio where she creates, glazes, and fires all her pieces. Peggy mixes all her glazes from scratch and spent the winter perfecting the techniques. Her work is heavily influenced by the Song Dynasty of China with monochromatic glazes and elegant designs. The pottery collection is primarily wheel-thrown with hand-modeled additions.

Peggy's current gallery show at Artlore Studio (3406 W. Lake Road) opened on December 11th and can be viewed until the second week of January. The pottery on display is available for purchase.

Peggy Quinn’s ceramic journey began at Edinboro University with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts with a concentration in Ceramics. She then went on to hold many jobs in the ceramic field including production potter for two companies in California and Clay and Glaze Specialist for a Ceramic Manufacturing plant also in California. She further developed her love of Chinese and Japanese pottery and aesthetics at Davis University in California where she studied Asian Art History in the Masters program.

While her ceramic business is new in Pennsylvania, she worked for years as an acrylic painter in Fort Collins Colorado. A few years ago she decided to return to her love of clay. She showed her paintings and pottery in local galleries in the Northern Colorado area. She had also applied for membership to “The Northern Colorado Potters Guild” and was accepted as a member. Since her move to the Erie PA area, she is currently working on establishing herself in the Northwest Pennsylvania area in the ceramic field. She is presently a member of the “Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen”.
