In September, I traveled to Iceland with my husband. Arriving by plane to Reykjavik, we set out by car to see glaciers, black sand, the golden circle, geysers, waterfalls, Icelandic museums and so much more. Below are some of my favorite pieces of wheel thrown and hand built pottery that this trip inspired me to create. Below the artwork are my images of places, color and nature that I used for inspiration. My artwork comes with a story… the pottery that make up this collection is meant to be used, touched and collected to bring joy and beauty to your home and those homes you visit and the people you share meals with. I hope the pieces start conversations at your table.

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.
As a “gig” worker, my summers were jam packed with lots of different classes and workshops where I’ve taught art and clay to students of all ages. Covid changed that for me and so many other instructors. Last summer I chose to teach virtually. It worked well. I learned to adapt. Thinking about summer 2021, I decided to return to in-person teaching. I took one full time job for 8 weeks teaching summer clay to campers grades 1-9. I didn’t make as much money as I could have teaching multiple shorter workshops, but it felt safer for me and safer for my young students, the majority of whom were too young to be vaccinated.
Interacting with new people, making friends, hearing the laughter of children and watching them create was joyful. I became part of a bigger community whose job was to provide a wonderful enriching summer for children in a time when that need could not have been greater. I think we succeeded as I look back on the amazing pottery the kids created…
