fullsizeoutput_1408My family visited San Francisco, California this past August. We toured Monterey and Carmel, viewed Big Sur and then traveled north to Sausalito and into wine country before heading into the foggy city of San Francisco in the summertime. Here’s a look at some of the inspiration for my forms and surface decoration.

 

 

Please stop in and see my ceramic collections as well as the work of my 20 studiomates at Potters Place, 127B Old West Street in Walpole, MA.

I will be featuring a new collection for spring that was inspired by a winter weekend with childhood friends.  The collection features the pottery needed for our ladies lunch.  The surface decorated in the colors of the ocean, dotted with fresh growth and a lattice that is symbolic of the friendships that support and guide our growth.

Potters Place Holiday Show & Sale

Potters Place Holiday Show and Sale will feature my new work: Family Dinners ~A Traveling Series.

My family traveled to Europe this past summer. We took in many sights including art museums, monuments and the natural beauty of many countries. Mealtime discussions were about what we were seeing and doing; and, what we were eating and drinking. We ate and drank what was traditional and local to that region of that country: Gnocchi in Venice, Italy; Tiramisu in Florence, Italy; Moules Frites in Nice, France; and, Jamon Serrano in Barcelona, Spain.
