Joanie Wolter lives in N. Scottsdale with her husband, Charlie, and their four cats. Her business name, “Cuvee”, is a wine term meaning “a blend”. Joanie’s work is a blend of creativity, artistry and humor. Although she started out doing ceramics, her new passion is Fiber Clay Sculpting. She creates whimsical sculptures that make people smile, and that’s her goal. Her art gives her a sense of serenity and wellbeing. She hopes that the love she puts into her pieces brings as much joy to those who view it as it does to her.
Teaching is Joanie’s second passion. As a public-school teacher for 37 years, it was a natural transition for her to teach the sculpting classes. To be able to share her knowledge and show people they too have the ability to create beautiful art is exciting! She feels blessed to be able to combine her to passions and create a second career!!! Life is good!!!!!
