Terra Mulliner was born and raised in Southern California and has lived in Las Vegas for about 7 years. "Some of my earliest memories are of the flowers that grew in my mother's garden. So, it is not surprising that I often incorporate my translation of a beautiful flower or leaf that I have encountered in my life onto my pottery. I have experienced an amazing crash course in the art of pottery making, since it has been my good fortune to have my husband and other amazing potters continually instructing and encouraging me. Carving, painting with slip, and painting with wax resist (on Shino glazes) are among my favorite techniques."
