In her ceramic sculptures, Donna Cole seeks to convey the beauties and mysteries of the Oregon coast, with its tide pools, shells, seaforms, and fossils. With their range of textures and colors and irregular, organic forms, her pieces convey a sense of time, as if shaped by the forces of nature. Cole, an Oregon native, received her MFA in ceramics from Kansas State University. She teaches ceramics at PCC Rock Creek.
