Welcome to the Yellow Cottage Studios
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
― Pablo Picasso
My name is Dani Montoya and I am a Gourd Artist and a wannabe potter!
I love to create art and I love to do it with what nature gives me. Gourds are grown from Mother Earth Herself and clay is really just dirt.
Just recently I built and moved into my little yellow cottage studio. Half of my studio is devoted to gourds and the other half is where I play in clay.
Within these pages I will share with you my ups and downs, successes and failures, lessons learned, thought processes and how to’s.
As I weave my way through Pottery, I hope to inspire you to keep trying, keeping throwing. As I weave my way through life you may have to hear about that as well. I hope you don’t mind!
And I will share with you what I make.
I hope you will follow me on my path as I explore being an artist via gourd art and Pottery.
