Sadie Grzechowski’s pottery is inspired by nature. Whether her pieces mimic faces with hair, the human body or the great outdoors, she finds inspiration in life. “Representing a lot of nature is the common theme,” says Grzechowski, of Southgate. Pottery has been part of her life since 2012, when she started classes at Henry Ford and fell in love with the art form. She enjoys the flexibility to be able to do different things with clay. “Clay is so versatile,” she says.
Everyone has a different way of dealing with grief. For Tim Yanke, losing his sister when he was young was sad, but he found inspiration to keep her memory alive through his art. “At that age, you’re very impressionable,” says Yanke, who is from Detroit originally, but lives in Huntington Woods. Yanke’s sister was living Out West and Yanke had just visited her before she was killed in an accident. To cope, he began sketching the things he saw where she lived.
Plates, mugs, tumblers and more — Deanna Clyne’s art consists of objects people can use on a daily basis. “I really want people to feel connected to my work, as I feel connected to nature and the experiences that have led me to use a certain texture,” the Mt. Clemens artist says. “I collect all sorts of things from beaches and forests, and press them into the clay. I let how I’m feeling in the studio dictate how I’m going to alter each piece.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
