Solveig Cox has been a potter for more than forty years. She was born in New York City where she attended a school where art was taught every day. Her mother and aunt were both artists, so for her it was a question of what material she would use. She attended Bennington College and started working with a potter's wheel. From the beginning, clay has been her medium to express her ideas about women and, for the past 20 years, about cats. Color and pattern are also very much part of her work. By attending a trade show once a year, her work is distributed to about a hundred galleries and shops across the United States.
