Pottery stimulates the senses tactually and visually, creating a unique connection with a viewer. A piece of nature-based fine artwork one can meditate on as well as use everyday is a true artistic gem.
Tracie Griffith Tso painted her first bamboo brushstrokes on rice paper at age 12 in a brushpainter’s studio in California. She specializes in spontaneous Chinese flower-bird painting, with her growing repertoire focused on traditional subjects including red-capped cranes, pandas, golden carp, horses, bamboo, rabbits and flowers of all types. Each piece is an original composition on handmade high-fire stoneware.
A native Californian, Griffith Tso has taught and lectured about Chinese brushpainting nationwide. The artist and her husband reside in Reston, Va. along with her workshop rabbit, Cleo.
