Wendy Drummond

Currently based in Fort Myers, Florida, Wendy Drummond was born and raised in New Zealand, moving to California to work as a Geologist. Ever since she was a child playing in the clays of coastal New Zealand, she always knew clay was the medium to best express her creativity, and ironically, her professional geology career also meant regularly having clay under her fingernails (and often in her hair). She utilizes wheel throwing and hand-building to create both functional and sculptural work with an emphasis on surface decoration, patterns and textures. She is driven to experiment and is constantly pushing the limits of structural integrity with her sculptural work. She has been an artist in residence at STARworks, North Carolina and exhibited at the Harborview Gallery, Florida; Boehm Gallery, California; Florida CraftArt Gallery, Florida; Morean Arts Center, Florida; Arturo Samaniego Gallery, Naples, and the Schoolhouse Gallery, North Carolina.
