Deborah G. Rogers is a self-taught artist “completely content to learn from life, a school from which I never plan to graduate.”
Each piece begins as a drawing/blueprint. The nature of her unfired clay mix (Marblex) is to warp and shrink. Altered and fabricated objects are made in advance, incorporating them as the clay is hand built. Washes of acrylic, layers of colored pencil, dyes, ink, drawings and commentary are added to the surface. Her work has received many awards and is found in corporate collections.
Rogers works in Norfolk, Virginia.
