Renee Clemmer started ceramics just before she retired from Gaston County Schools. It only took one class for her to become addicted to the possibilities of clay. She uses the wheel for more traditional pieces and hand builds to create one of a kind art. Renee has taken classes and workshops held by many regional potters. She continues to learn new techniques at Gaston College
In 2006 Renee 2006 was awarded an Honorable Mention at the "Visual Harvest" art exhibit sponsored by the Gaston County Art Guild. She won third place at the Southern Arts Society show "I Am Woman" in 2007 and has shown her work in many other art exhibits.
