Zen Mountain Gallery Zen Mountain Gallery is very pleased to welcome a new potter to the gallery. Studio potter Ken Barnes was originally from Yorkshire, England where he studied ceramics for several years before immigrating to Michigan in 1981 and eventually settling in northern Arizona. Barnes says, “Clay is the perfect medium; after a rough day one can become completely absorbed in throwing a complex form on the wheel and forget the rigors of daily life. This became very important during my other job days as an engineering manager. The daily stress has reduced since my retirement from the engineering world which leaves me more time to be creative in clay.” Barnes is a working member of Reitz Ranch for Ceramic Arts in Clarkdale where he produces work, as well as a studio in his home. Ken Barnes’ pottery is the perfect combination of being exquisitely crafted and affordably priced. Join Zen Mountain Gallery for February Art Walk to find a piece of Ken Barnes’ pottery for yourself and enjoy a glass of Arizona wine from Vino Zona.
