The owner, Tracy Wygal, went to art school in Norway. She started out as a painter but then switched to clay.

"I just kind of like working in 3-D more than in one dimensional," she said.

But her painting days aren't over.

"My colors, I use them more like paint than glaze," she said.

Wygal is inspired by nature, and her pottery and colors reflect that. She uses different shades of blue reminiscent of the ocean since she is from California.

One of Wygal's unique projects is the Bluebird of Happiness. According to a card that comes with each clay bird purchase, they represent "cheerfulness, happiness, prosperity, hearth and home, good health, new birth, renewal of the spirit or any positive sentiment." It is a global symbol, although different countries use different birds.

"But it all means the same thing universally," Wygal said. "It is the coolest sentiment because it's just like a well wishing for someone."

Some of the other items Wygal makes include bowls, platters, necklaces, business card holders, bird nests, salt cellars, key chains and magnets.

"There's something at every price," she said.

Wygal is hosting her annual Christmas pottery party and open studio tomorrow and Friday from noon to 8 p.m. The party will include refreshments, door prizes and a raffle. Tomorrow customers will find the best selection, and Wygal is offering a 10 percent discount on everything.

Outwest Artistry and Bluebird Pottery is at 323 S. Fourth St.
