ANN SCIBA - POTTERY - PORCELAIN
When Ann Sciba took a pottery class in 1967, she did not dream she would be using those skills for over 50 years. The Artisans of Mancos Gallery now includes her work.
Early experience with making and selling pottery included having a shop at Santa’s Workshop at the foot of Pike’s Peak. There she made pots, demonstrating to visitors of the park, and selling her work. She also showed with galleries in Colorado Springs, Denver, and Cripple Creek. After moving back to Texas she taught pottery in Victoria while being the director of the Open Door, an arts and crafts school there. Another move took her to Wharton, a much smaller town, where she continued to make pots. During the last 15 years she has shown her work in several galleries in Texas while also showing her work at craft and art fairs across the state.
Sciba moved to Cortez to live with her daughter in November, 2017, and has been working in clay while organizing her new studio at home.
