Travel Collection 2021

inspiration, New work, sale, shop local, shop small

Traveling is a big part of where I find inspiration for my one of a kind wheel thrown and hand built functional pottery. I was able to travel this year to Bermuda in late August. Below are photographs of finished pottery and where ideas have come from. My collections should be seen as one big painting; all the parts together tell the story of the experience.

I’ll be selling this collection at the 7th annual Medfield Stroll on Friday, December 3rd. As one of 40 participating artists juried into this event, I will be situated in the Memorial Public Library, 468 Main Street, Medfield, MA. The event is one day from 4pm to 9pm. The Cultural Alliance of Medfield is organizing this event and very active in promoting the Arts. Click here to find out more about this event and the Alliance.

In the summertime, I’m finishing up some orders and experimenting with glazes for my fall collection. So many lovely pieces came out of my last kiln run, that I’m happy to share them with you. All have been listed on my flickr account with pricing and options to purchase. Enjoy!

As I watch the cities and towns turn from green to yellow, I’m reminded that patience is important. I miss being in the classroom; I miss the closeness that comes from sitting opposite a student and pulling a pot up together; I miss the close interaction with a child who is frustrated and needs a helping hand; I miss so much that this pandemic has forced us to press pause on.

Teaching Pottery to Adults pre-COVID

The upside of pressing pause and rethinking how to teach has provided new opportunities for personal growth and adding technical tools to my teaching regime. This can only be a good thing. Here are some of the teaching opportunities available to students of all ages.

Drawing lessons on zoom – one to one, or groups. Single classes or multiple. All ages welcome. Email me to set something up.

6 and 8 week hand building classes at Mother Brook Arts on zoom starting in September. A monthly Q & A on Monday mornings and Thursday evenings. Sign up today!

Outdoor Art 4 Sunday mornings starting September 12 at the Westwood Recreation Department. Registration is open!

Try out “Pottery from home”, a virtual class held on Zoom on Friday afternoons this fall through the Westwood Recreation Department. Registration is open!

Newton Community Education Pottery classes will be virtual for grades 1-5 this fall. “Pottery at Home” will be offered Mondays, Wednesdays & Thursdays for 14 week sessions Sept-December. Sign up here!

Keep Art in your life. Clay is any form is clay!

Clay and Chardonnay PRE COVID – Here’s to getting back to that as soon as it’s safe!

New Work

inspiration, New work, shop local, shop small, summer

The COVID19 Pandemic and quarantine impacted my art. My ceramic homes represent my neighborhood.

One of my neighbors, a nurse, organized a “first responders” event in April. She emailed neighbors to ask for help in recognizing the health care workers in “Cloverland” (the name we use when referring to our Westwood, MA neighborhood). She asked for money to purchase restaurant gift cards for these families, to create signs of support, and help to decorate these homes with lawn signs, chalk signs and balloons. It was a huge success!

In the middle of July, some of these signs are still standing – through hard rain and wind storms – just like these health care workers. It takes a village… and my art reflects this life that is.
