Orlando Clay Artist Douglas Bringle

Handbuilt clay vesselI recently had the pleasure of working with a clay artist from Orlando, Douglas Bringle.  He is an amazing artist with a quiet disposition.  He has been working with clay as his medium for fourteen years.  Using traditional pinch, coil and slab methods he creates amazing art.  His pieces are sometimes whimsical and while contemporary, they embody the feel of the ancient cultures that he loves so much.

We love to work with first-time website owners at Maggie McLeod Designs.  It give us an opportunity to meet and talk with the owner of the website and really understand the look and feel they are seeking.

Douglas is an artist.  His work represents contemporary and ancient cultures spun together through the use of textures, color and subject matter.  We wanted his website to reflect his art.  It needed to tell his story and serve as a place for people to learn more about him and his work.

Doug (as many people know him) teaches art to both children and adults at Crealdé School of Art in Winter Park, FL.  He takes great pride in creating a curriculum that sparks curiosity and inspires creativity.  Children create magical creatures intertwined with bits of science, history and geography – they love what they learn.

Handbuilt Clay FaceAdults find relaxation in his classes.  They enjoy learning about ancient cultures and techniques in his ‘Handbuilding like the Ancients‘ class.  You will find a schedule of upcoming classes on his website.

Doug is a graduate of the University of Florida and is well respected as an artist in the Central Florida area.  His pieces are alive with texture and often contain hidden features if you examine them closely.  His work has been exhibited at Disney’s Festival of the Masters and EPCOT’s International Flower and Garden Festival.  He is a frequent exhibitor at art festivals throughout the state of Florida.  Douglas’ exhibitions are not confined to the state of Florida, however.  He has also exhibited as far away as Tennessee, Virginia, California and Belgium!
