Daphne Roehr Hatcher
Daphne Roehr Hatcher has been a full-time studio potter for over forty years. A third-generation native Texan, Daphne established Pine Mills Pottery with her husband Gary in the scenic woodlands of northeast Texas in 1979. The studio was begun after three years of apprenticeship training in England, France and Greece, including eighteen months with David Leach and twelve months with Michael Leach. She received a BFA degree in art from the University of North Texas School of Visual Arts and has received many awards for her work in the ceramic field, including the UNT 1999 President’s Citation and extended travel in Australia as a Rotary Scholar.
Daphne exhibits widely in invitational and juried exhibitions, both nationally and internationally. In recent years she has exhibited her ceramic art in the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts seven times, The University of Iowa Museum of Art, and the Houston Museum of Contemporary Craft.
Daphne has work on permanent display in the American Airlines Corporate Collection, the Ceramics Monthly Collection, the Rosenfield Collection, and the personal collection of Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio and others. Images of her work have appeared in numerous books and periodicals.
She makes a point of cultivating deep relationships with colleagues throughout the world and shares her unique perceptions of life and art through her daily adventures in her studio, through photography and commentary on living the life of a full time artist.
Daphne maintains a rigorous and prolific production of ceramic works that are widely sought after by collectors.
