Gretchen Quinn
To me, it’s the freehand carving that makes my pots feel fresh and modern and what tells the user that every piece is handmade.
Debra Oliva
It is my hope to draw the viewer ever closer to examine the intricacies of the surface of the piece and experience the pleasure of its use.
Mike Jabbur
Interesting and beautiful functional objects help to transform otherwise routine activities into meaningful life-affirming moments.‚Äč
Teresa Pietsch
A former scientific illustrator, Teresa's work reflects ideas that are centered in life, growth and  experience.
Eric Beavers
I feel pottery should speak to the user about the artist's intent and the qualities that can only be found in the handmade.
Andrew Iannazzi
 Andrew uses his objects to explore functionality, form, and iconic representations throughout his work.

January Recipe
Sausage and Tortellini Tomato Soup
Cedar Creek Gallery Studio Artist Jennifer Stas shared one of her favorite wintertime go-to recipes to warm us up from the inside-out. 
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb raw hot Italian poultry sausage, casings removed (you can use turkey or chicken sausage)
  • 32 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (28 oz) can unseasoned crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 oz cream cheese (can use 1/3 less fat kind), cut into cubes
  • 12 oz refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 2 cups torn fresh spinach
  • Can add carrots and zucchini, mushrooms or other vegetables as desired. Can also sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Pour olive oil into a soup pot or Dutch oven and bring to medium-high heat.

Add onions and cook until softened. Add minced garlic, stir together and cook for another 30-60 seconds. Add sausage and mix together. Cook, breaking the meat up into small pieces, until the sausage is thoroughly cooked and fully crumbled.

Add broth, crushed tomatoes, basil, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, increase the heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.

Uncover pot and add cream cheese. Whisk while simmering until cream cheese is dissolved. Add tortellini and spinach and stir together. Cover the pot and simmer for 10 minutes until pasta is cooked.
