Description

Raised mostly in the midwest, Glynnis learned to throw at age 10. "I have always maintained an interest in ceramics; throwing in high school and working for a potter when I was 16. 
After some coursework at MacAlester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, I got my BFA  at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis.
I then moved to Chicago and worked in adverstising and as a professional photographer. After becoming thoroughly disenchanted with that,  I started making and selling jewelry and landed at Lill Street in Chicago where I worked and taught for 25 years. 
My work has always been mostly functional high-fire and since my arrival at  Lill Street, I have worked more and more with slipped surface decoration. Much of my work is sgraffito on thrown porcelain but not exclusively so.
I believe stongly in using art to build self esteem among all ages and also in integrating art into regular school curriculum.
I have done outreach into the public schools for A.R.T., Spertus Museum, Lill Street Learning Center among other institutions and have volunteered teaching art at InterAmerican Magnet School in Chicago since 1997. I am currently teaching at the Northern Clay Center and the Northfield Arts Guild. In 2012 I relocated from Chicago, moving to a small town in Minnesota with my family. Although I am now a full time potter, devoting most of my energy to making pots and selling them at art fairs and shows,teaching is still a strong part of who I am."
