Waltz, David Craig — Heart's Image

Columbia, KY


functional pottery, sculptures

David Waltz’s Heart’s Image pottery and sculpture studio is located on a 67-acre farm in Adair County, Kentucky.  David says he knew the farm was right for him the first moment he saw it. The workshop and gallery are located about eight miles west of Columbia, KY on 80 West.


David creates three-dimensional figurative sculptures, which are fired, then pit-fired to create a weathered look.  All his functional and one-of-a kind pottery is made of stoneware clay and formed on a potter’s wheel or by hand.  These pieces feature glazes that are non-toxic and lead free.


David is a member of the Kentucky Craft Marketing Program and the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen.


David’s work can be found at My Old Kentucky Home Gift Shop, Bardstown, KY; Bernheim Forest Gift Shop, Clermont, KY; Completely Kentucky, Frankfort, KY; Janice Mason Art Museum, Cadiz, KY; and at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, Berea, KY.
