Rebecca Butler was born and raised in the Quincy/Hannibal area. She received her BFA from Quincy University, where
she now teaches Ceramics.
She works in many different media, with concentrations in silk painting and clay. Rebecca loves to travel and her art work is highly influenced by her "family vacations ". History has also always been a big part of her world.
Rebecca ' s clay pieces are hand built, using texture as part of the design. "I love the lumps and bumps that alot of potters see as imperfections. I use them to my advantage and change the design to accommodate nature". Rebecca is also starting to reintroduce an ancient Egyptian decorating technique. Using a clay slip, she draws Henna designs onto her pottery.
