So much is packed into today’s artist event! Libby Armstrong, local ceramicist and artist, is onsite today along with Erica Passage. They are showing beautifully designed and hand-crafted pieces that are sure to please anyone on your Christmas list!
Libby Armstrong is a native to the Florida Panhandle and currently lives in Tallahassee. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Studio Art and has worked in the art and design fields for several years. She has a passion for clay and operates a multidisciplinary studio from home. Libby currently sells her wares and vintage objects in her shop THE OAK AND THE FERN.
Her inspiration comes from the natural settings found on earth – from the lush aerial gardens of summer kudzu to the nearby beaches and state forests that surround. Libby tries to capture the simple and complex lines and forms found in nature, and always remembers that “nature did it best, and first.”
She looks to landscapes and horizon lines, native flora and fauna, patterns and tones found here on earth and in her native land. An avid traveler and accomplished drawer, she is influenced by other cultures and artistic avenues. All of these components plus her imagination set the imagery and form found in her work.
