Walter O'Neill, ceramics and fresco artist
Ceramics is my primary studio activity.  For me, the express quality of ceramics comes from directly working in clay drawing in three-dimensions with the clay.  I let the feel, texture, and plasticity of the clay lead me in the creative process.

For many years I was a painter primarily working in true fresco creating wall-hung frescoes as well as commissioned murals. Fresco, like clay, uses natural earth materials of lime, sand and earth pigments.  I taught at Skowhegan for a decade and conducted fresco workshops at colleges throughout the country.

 An image of one of my frescoes is featured in the art appreciation college textbook "Gateways to Art"  Published by Thames & Hudson. (fall 2018)
