“ONE OF A KIND” PACIFIC NORTHWEST POTTERY ART
Autumn Bunton was born in Spokane, Washington in 1980. She was raised on a farm that her family homesteaded in the 1800s!
Always interested in the antiques and curiosities found around the family farm, Autumn started to create art with whatever she could find…using watercolors, plants, and various odds and ends. This all came in addition to cooking for the family and then tending to livestock, which filled her years on the farm.
As a young lady Autumn’s great grandmother introduced her to oil painting, which she enjoyed well into her adult years. The painting experience helped to give her a foundation for under glazing and sculpting clay.
Autumn is married and has three boys at home, when her children were young she felt that oil paints where not entirely safe around the children. She decided at that time to sign up for a pottery class, she knew right away she had found her passion!
As her skills developed, she began carving and painting on her wares…incorporating her love of painting with her new found love of clay.
Her latest work has a mid-century style, as time goes on her work is always changing…as it evolves. She and five other potter’s founded the Urban Art Co-op in 2014. The Co-op is thriving and still creating art around some of her favorite people. Autumn’s hope now is that she makes “your” favorite mug a reality.
