Patricia Gambino, of Heath Springs, SC, is the sole owner of Clay Impressions. Started 15 years ago, Gambino produces stoneware pottery designed for use in the kitchen that is decorative as well as useful. Gambino explains, “As an artist since childhood, I love trying different media and once I worked in clay I was hooked. I derived my name from the literal impressions I make in the clay using both common and unusual objects.” You can find Gambino’s work at Provisions in downtown Waxhaw. She has been selling her work there for over three years now. “Having my pieces at Provisions has exposed my work to a new audience.” Although she does have her work at several locations in South Carolina, Provisions Waxhaw is the only place that you can find Gambino’s work in North Carolina.
