Dawn Soltysiak – Khnemu Studio Preservation, nature, and knowledge are key to my life's journey. I enjoy exploring the interplay of organic forms, unique firing techniques, and natural processes. My work is the result of these explorations. I enjoy diversity of styles from non-functional objects of beauty, and creating functional work which my customers can use and enjoy on a daily basis. My studio is located on the 30 acre sustainable Fernwood Farm, which I call home. The studio and kilns are green energy, being fueled by a 17.94 kWh solar array. I strive to live a lifestyle that is in harmony with nature and hope to create a connection to the artist and the land. What is Khnemu and how do you pronounce it? (Kh-ne-mu, and yes you say the K) In Egyptian mythology Khnemu was the god of creation, arts and craft, and fertility. It was believed by the ancients that Khnemu fashioned man and the later gods on his potter's wheel. "Khnemu" literally means molder or sculptor.
