Kelly McLendon

Kelly McLendon has been working with ceramics since 1991. Introduced to clay while getting a degree in Fine Art Photography at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, her background in photography has greatly influenced her work in ceramics. But it is her love of functional art in everyday living that has kept Kelly working in the media for 20+ years. Kelly likes to explore the ethereal, the surreal, the whimsical, and the beautiful line. “I enjoy creating little poems for the eyes.” Please visit my web site at
