Kelly Donaldson and Pamela Lane Donaldson have been working together since the early 70's. Their original work was high-fired, gas reduction, mostly functional ware. Most pieces were collaborations with Kelly throwing pieces on the wheel which Pam decorated/altered with painted glazes, relief carving, and sculptural elements. All pieces, including dinnerware, were one of a kind. They have never considered themselves production potters.

The early '80's took them to Bend, OR, where circumstances conspired to turn them to raku as a primary firing technique. Freed from the need to be functional, their work went in a different direction. At first most pieces were collaborations, then Pamela began supplementing the repertoire with hand-built sculptural work - mostly wall hung - much of which was informed by her interest in the human figure. Today they make their home in Dundee, Oregon.
