Robin Bird Smith

I dabbled in several art mediums before I found clay.  It literally stuck.  Somehow, I am able to transfer ideas from my mind, through my fingertips and on to the clay.  All of my inspiration comes from the life around me.
I live in the wonderful area of North Georgia and the Blue Ridge Mountains.  I am truly inspired by the woodland, rivers, lakes, and wildlife.  I love birds, bears, dogs, horses, elephants, etc.  They are all unique and wonderful.  I try my best to capture their spirit and identity in clay.  I use glaze to secure the piece for function and to add color and contrast. 
Each piece is designed, created, and sculpted by me.  Each piece is a one of a kind creation and will not be duplicated.  I am a self-taught artist.  I lean heavily towards sculpture and folk art.  The chuckles and laughter from those that view my work, is quite rewarding.
Besides my inspirational Georgia home, I enjoy traveling the United States.  Everywhere, from sea to mountain, This is where I find new ideas for sculptures and pottery.  Sometimes I can hardly wait to get in the studio and make a new piece from a very sweet memory.
