Jude KettunenScarlet pair.jpg (182525 bytes)Golden pair.jpg (268937 bytes)

You may know Jude as a talented painter of softly abstracted landscapes (click Paintings above), but she is also an accomplished ceramic artist. A Scandinavian-American, she studied Hohokam and Anasazi arts and even worked as a Park Ranger at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. Hence, she brings a unique contemporary Scandinavian flavor to Southwest designs. She creates these ceramic "Spirit" figures in many colors, designs and sizes in her Scottsdale studio. Most are about 20 to 32 inches tall (measured to the top of the feathers) and they are weighted heavily in the bottom for stability.Spirit figures in niches.jpg (668668 bytes)

David McDonald

David is best known for ceramic platters he calls Mandalas. The shape of the platters are inherently organic, their contour made in a cloth sling, forming a natural arch. Each piece can be displayed flat or in a plate stand or hung on a wall by the wire loop on the back. He can make platters sized 15", 20" and 25" in a wide selection of patterns and colors to enhance any decor.

At Pinnacle Gallery we often sell coordinated sets that make dramatic statements when mounted on a wall. We have hung sets in living rooms, dining rooms, over fireplaces, in stairwells and offices that add lots of interest and texture while enhancing the colors of the room.

Anne Goldman

Canyon Wall vessel 75.jpg (254457 bytes)We are proud to have offered Anne's unique hand-carved vessels for over 12 years, though they are rarely displayed in theCoastal Rock vase.jpg (241169 bytes) gallery. Usually, when we receive her pieces they sell so quickly that even frequent visitors haven't seen them. It is interesting that as people walk through the gallery they are ALL attracted to Goldman's vessels, no matter what their taste. "What are these made of?" people ask us. We tell them each piece is hand-carved ceramics and they are amazed! Customers who own a Goldman vessel say the same: "Everyone visiting our home is drawn to the Goldman vessel."


This "Canyon Wall" vase and the "Coastal Rock" vase to the right are examples of her work.


Please call us to find what is available now or to ask to be contacted when we receive a piece.
