Gail Trunick lives and works in the small, rural northeastern Ohio town of Burghill. Gail grew up eight in a family of nine children. Her father died in a steel mill accident and she was raised by her mother who made her living as a potter. Much of her childhood was enjoyably spent going to outdoor art shows, peddling her mother’s smoked stoneware vessels. From this began a lifelong adventure in the arts, not only for her but also for several of her siblings.

Gail graduated with a BFA from Kent State University with a major in painting in 1980. Soon after graduating, and with the subsequent death of her mother, she found herself more and more drawn to the clay and earth that are her roots. Since this time her artistic concentration has been clay and mixed-media sculpture. Her resume includes numerous one-woman and group exhibitions and she has works included in numerous public and private collections.

    Hi Gail,
    It was a pleasure meeting you and seeing your work at the Oglebay festival last week. You asked that I email you about getting the name of a vendor who has a rust promoting solution for metal. Thx
