Barbara Walch received her bachelor of fine arts degree in sculpture in 1972 from the State University of New York, New Paltz, and has been creating hand-built pottery ever since. She uses a style called “pinch” pottery, in which she begins with a block of clay and pinches the clay into its form with her fingertips. No two pots are the same, and Walch leaves the exteriors of her work unglazed, coating the insides of her pieces with colors that recall elements from nature.
