A little about the Artist
Growing up in the town of Dalton, Massachusetts, located in the heart of the picturesque Berkshire Hills, I developed a connection with nature. This is evident throughout my work, as many of my pieces incorporate the leaves, vines and flowers that grow in my extensive English-style gardens.
With degrees in both design and sculpture, I love working and experimenting with the use of form, shape and texture. I have always had a passion for weaving and basketry, but when I was exposed to ceramics through friends who were potters, I found that getting my hands into clay was a natural. So rather than choosing between the two mediums, I decided to pursue both.
About their Business
Each piece of pottery is individually created using leaves and clippings from our own gardens. I use what grows! After being harvested, the plant is pressed into rolled out clay, where it remains until it is burned off in the kiln firing process. This allows nature to guide the form of each piece.
