Kelly Daniels makes wheel-thrown functional vessels: cups, tumblers, baskets, pitchers, bowls, teapots, ewers, vases, and sculptural wall tiles. She works in high-fired porcelain and stoneware, soda-fired in a gas kiln. Surface treatment includes stenciling.

"Depth in the surface is created by layering mask and stencils and the building up of the surface through application of liquid clay slips. Additional texture is created through fine line work carved into the surface that carries a tangible story for fingertips and eyes to trace." (Kelly Lynn Daniels. 2008).
