Ellary Ann Blair is the owner of Ellie Pots Inc., a pottery studio specializing in the creation of pottery art, including decorative tiles, pottery bottles, handmade vases, pottery bowls, pottery plates, and more. With a refined background in crystalline pottery, Ms. Blair offers pottery services online, conducts research, and decorates with crystalline glazes. She also oversees her online business, makes crystalline pottery, watercolor art, and pastel artwork.
Ms. Blair has crafted a refined skill set over a career that has spanned nearly half a century, and she continues to strive for excellence in her every endeavor. She has been potting since 1974, and her distinctive technique was developed while she was in school using crystalline glazes. Ms. Blair has garnered a reputation of prominence among art aficionados for her unique use of a zinc silica combination glaze. Her realization that adding other elements will yield various end results of color and a glass finish has allowed her to produce remarkable pieces. Ms. Blair conducts workshops on crystalline glazes and displays her artwork at The Phoenix Gallery in Lawrence, Kansas.
Renowned for her remarkable talents, Ms. Blair feels that she has been able to achieve success due to sheer hard work and self-motivation. She previously worked in nurseries for 30 years, and was prompted to pursue her current career path due to her fascination with pottery. She is a member of a number of creative organizations, including The American Ceramic Society, The Potters Guild, and the local Artists and Potters Guild. In 2005, she was named an Upcoming New Artist at the Lattice Structures Symposium in Kansas City, Missouri. She would like to be remembered by her peers as an energetic woman who loved to have her hands in the mud.
