Pottery ~ Woodturning ~ Photography
Brushy Fork Creek Gallery offers high quality pottery, woodturning and photography in a peaceful setting. The artists, Paul and Tricia have been working in their mediums for over 30 years and have won many awards for their expertise. While visiting you can tour the studio where the work is created and see work in progress. Also tours of the farm and gardens are available.
Paul and Tricia moved to Kentucky in 1974, found some land the locals called ‘no mans land’, tracked down 16 grandchildren heirs, and purchased 100 acres of woods with no buildings. Ever since they have been working on their version of ‘reality’ to create a space to suit their needs. Brushy Fork Creek is located in the rolling hills and oak forests of western Kentucky where Paul and Tricia Ferrell live and run their studio and gallery since 1977.
Paul uses the native woods from the area to create beautiful pieces of turned wood such as salad bowls, ikebanas, hollow forms, and wine tops. His many years of experience turning are evident in the fine quality of his forms and finishes.
Tricia, Paul’s other half, works with high fire stoneware clay to make functional pots of all kinds. She likes to make things for the kitchen and garden. She is now also doing some sculpting for the garden. All her work is safe in microwave and dishwasher and lead free.
Tricia has also been using photographs taken at Brushy Fork Creek to create patchwork quilt collages of the flowers and critters that are part of life at BFC. The originals are stitched together using embroidery thread.
