Trudy Evard Chiddix


My work is inspired by the art of ancient civilizations, by folk crafts of many cultures, and by patterns and textures found in nature and while traveling. Blending these “discovered motifs” into my art gives me a sense of connection to other people and places. My primary medium is clay, but I often incorporate fused glass and mixed media into my vessels, sculptures and wall hangings. The pieces are handbuilt with clay slabs and coils, and then glazed and fired before the mixed media elements are attached. I strive to create lively objects that show the work of the human hand and spirit.

  1. Hi Trudy! I have been wanting to purchase a piece of your sculpture for a long time and Janet Crescenzie said you had a web site! I am very impressed! I am living in Florida now. Have been back to CA a few times to see Mom usually under “iffy” conditions with her and Deb’s health. At the moment all is well. You are probably back and forth between SF and Colorado. Let me know how you are and what you have for sale. I would like a rather large piece. I remember you having some angel like figures that I really liked at your home in SF. Big hug and kisses, JOY
