Prior to her current clinical work Dr. Kaye-Huntington taught art in New York City and has worked for many years as a potter, specializing in wheel thrown earthenware, showing and selling work here in Philadelphia. Her most recent wheel thrown, low fired earthenware vessels, are coated in terre sigillata. They reflect her interest in the sensuousness of poured pigment. Her goal is to explore in a playful and graceful way the interaction of the clay body and surface in many layers, concealing and revealing the thrown object. In some ways, these shifting levels parallel psychotherapy in which the individual and therapist share and withhold experience on many levels - conscious and unconscious.
