Louis and Christine Colombarini

Our fascination with Egyptian and Pre-Columbian artifacts, the delight of dogs, cats, and the rural Tennessee life style, along with our enduring romance with clay are the important elements of our creative direction. These personal preferences provide a foundation of ideas in which we conceive our structural visions.

We enjoy the challenge of testing the sensitive physical limits of clay, by building precarious shapes and forms into stimulating and sound constructions. We strive to incorporate into our works subconscious themes of mystical imagery, curious symbols, and lyrical patterns.

There is a profound correlation between our completed works and the fragility of life itself. Our work reflects a common bond of earth and human spirit. Overall, it is our intent to stimulate the imagination, evoke a mood of pleasure, and share our intimate involvement; for art is sharing the vision of the soul.
