Meet Darlene Olds.
She is a maker living in Sammamish, but her involvement in the northwest ceramics culture is regional. Darlene has been a Resident Ceramic Artist at the Kirkland Arts Center for the past 11 years . She was a ceramics tech at the Bellevue Art Museum when they had their ceramics program and ceramics teacher and tech at the Multnomah Arts center in Portland for 8 years prior to moving to the Seattle area.
She specializes in functional high-fire ceramics – bowls, mugs, plates, etc. “I am very proud to be a part of this community and hope that I can make an important contribution to it.” She looks forward to seeing and responding to the many people who have seen, bought and use her wares at Sammamish Arts Fair, October 13thand 14th.
