About the Artist

"Working with clay is an experiment of endless possibilities. I love creating  with this unlimited medium"
Pam Brock grew up in rural Cabarrus County, North Carolina on a 200 acre farm. Many hours of her childhood were spent on the bare back of her sorrel quarter horse, Dylan. From an early age, she enjoyed drawing and painting. Her natural ability to assimilate visual information from many sources brings variety to her work.

After completing preliminary work at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, Pam transferred to East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. There she studied in various media with a focus on fiber arts.

From 1987 to 1997, Pam owned and operated a graphic arts business where she developed brochures, newsletters, advertising and other publications for customers in the Carolinas. In 1998, Pam decided to focus full time again on her fine arts pursuits by enrolling in the ceramic arts class at Gaston College. In 2002, she entered the ceramics program at Western Piedmont Community College where she received a 2 year degree in Professional Craft: Pottery.

She continued her work and study with workshops and courses under master potters  Ben Owen III, Michael Sherrill, Pete Pinnell, Kathy Triplett,  Lana Wilson,  Scottie Fox,  Paula Smith, Doug Knotts.  She also studied with 2-D artists Jean Cauthen, Vae Hamilton, Kate Worm , and Pat Viles .

Today, Pam's home is filled with works in, oil, acrylics, clay  and fiber arts as well as a growing collection of pottery from other ceramic artists. 

Pam, her husband and soul mate John, make their home in Decatur, Alabama.
