Diane Gale grew up in Sacramento, California. She has a B.S. degree in economics from the University of California at Davis, and a MBA from the University of California at Berkeley.
Diane has been making pottery for over 25 years, balancing supporting herself with her passion for ceramics. For the past several years she has focused her creative talents and energy on her art.
Her work creates a coming together of nature from the earth kneaded into form, glazed in the earth’s minerals, and born from fire to be nature reformed. Diane’s work is available in galleries and numerous private collections.
For me, a piece begins with function. For pieces such as bowls, teapots, and cups, I pay high attention to details, bringing together design elements such as wall thickness, rim and spout shape, handle placement (balance), and surface glaze. This is because when someone reaches for their favorite piece of pottery, it’s because all of those elements have come together.
