San Juan Community Theater and San Juan Islands Museum of Art are pleased to present a joint production. Our two organizations have collaborated to produce a series of short documentaries highlighting local artists.

Step into the studio of ceramic artist Paula West.


Merging function, craft, and art; her work is thrown on the potter’s wheel or shaped from rolled slabs of porcelain and stoneware clay.

She explores texture, contrast, and line, creating whimsical motifs, geometric patterns, and carved surfaces using Sgraffito and Mishima surface decorating techniques.

West has shown in national juried exhibitions and her studio is a regular on the San Juan Island Artists’ Studio Tour.
