The unifying theme of Ginny’s work is her appreciation of clay as a natural material that has played an important role in art and culture.
Ginny Redgate creates tools, vessels, and wall sculptures. Her functional work ranges from modern interpretations of classic patterns and forms to the rustic and raw. The rhythmic patterns in nature serve as an inspiration - as does the feel, history, and culture surrounding clay itself. It's a call to the honoring of materials and craft.
Ginny’s latest sculptural work is a study of large ceramic bead-hangings. She is exploring how the rhythmic patterns of beadwork connect us with nature and how beads have been used throughout history to communicate, protect, as well as for ceremony.
Ginny founded Public Stoneware in 2019 to reach others who seek a connection with nature through their daily practices. She and her small team create tools for everyday rituals.
Public Stoneware clients include the Wythe Hotel, for their private dining service, LA's Kassi Club, and many fine shops across the country such as Sundance Catalog, Comerford Collection, Sailor, Manse, HudsonBoston, Homebody Denver, Adorn Seattle, and Sunrise Home. She has shown in various NYC galleries and participated in the Japan Society's NY/Tokyo Ceramic Competition. She can be found in her studio in Brooklyn or wood firing in Vermont.
