Born and raised in Sanford, Maine, Winslow presently has a home and studio in Waterboro. There he creates his incredible works in clay and glass. He also paints in various mediums. Though the travel bug was a large part of his youth, he has called Maine home for many years.
“I started doing pottery many years ago in my college years,” shares Winslow. “The world of work distracted my art and pottery output for several years. It wasn’t until later that I could get back to my arts and crafts interest. Now they are primary in my life.”
Winslow primarily does most of his pottery working on the wheel and uses multiple methods to add texture and design to many of his shapes.
“I have explored many firing and glazing options,” says Winslow. “Currently, I mostly fire to cone 5/6 and consistently use glazes certified as food safe.”
Currently, Winslow does both painting and pottery and belongs to several arts and crafts associations. He also participates in numerous shows in the Southern Maine area. His studio is on the lower level of his home, where he also maintains an exhibit space.
