Westwood Artists, (photographer Karen Cagan, fiber artist Kathy Zola and ceramic artist Lisa W B Walker) arrived at Powisset Farm early on August 27th to set up their stations and begin creating art inspired by the farm.
This was the first Makers Day held at Powisset Farm. It included visual artists as well as music (by My Mothers Moustache), performances (scenes from Shakespeare’s Hamlet by Medfield Gazebo Players), food (baking bread in the kitchen) and interactive kids activities. All artists were inspired by Powisset Farm.
As a ceramic artist, I am inspired by the vegetation that grows at the farm. I gathered herbs and other leaves from the fields, placed them on low fire clay and added colored slips. I love the way the clay captures the texture of a leaf!
I found compositions to create into functional objects in my demonstration … some small dishes and ornaments. My favorite leaves turned out to be a sunflower leaf and a tomato plant’s leafy vine. Other interesting leaves were sage, green bean leaves and parsley.
This collection is still in process, but I will be at the farm with my permanent collection of functional pottery this coming Saturday. My work references nature and leaves; flowers and growth are important elements in my permanent collections. Stop in to say hello and enjoy this beautiful Trustees of the Reservation property.

The farm to table approach to living is simple and easy when you have a farm like Powisset where the farmers are friendly, the food is local and varied by season, and the community is cherished. Pottery is the handmade “ingredient” that holds your food and makes your experience complete. One of a kind, user friendly, created within 5 miles of the food that will go on it and in it: that’s farm to table.
It is always a great day when we sell pottery at the farm! See you Saturday!
Lisa WB Walker and Hog Wild Pottery will host their one and only summer pottery sale at Powisset Farm this Saturday, June 13th from 10am to 5pm. Powisset Farm is near and dear to these potters because of their relationship with the farmers and people who work and love the land.
Powisset Farm is home to a farm stand that will feature local produce and local products, such as Crescent Ridge dairy, Lucy Two Shoes hand lettered tea towels, and loads of Peter’s honey and Blue Moon Cafe’s bread … It is a CSA with a long list of shareholders. And, it is a trustees of the reservation property with trails to hike on and vistas to enjoy.
Join us for a pottery sale, but join us also for the experience of how a farm works, what it means to stop and talk to another shareholder or farmer, to be a part of a community that feels the rhythm of the planting and growing season. Come eat lots of handpicked strawberries in beautiful handmade bowls!
As potters, we embrace the notion that food should be eaten on handmade ware. That color is important. That the relationship with the food, with the pottery and with the person it connects to all matter. We are blessed to share this vision with the powisset farmers.
The best way to celebrate the Spring and the beginning of the farm season: SPRING FEST! Yes! Come out the Powisset Spring fest, on May 30th from 10am-3pm!

I am the featured artist of the month at the guild. My “By the Ocean” collection will be featured up front for the party. You can find photos of this collection by visiting my flickr account but I recommend visiting the guild, located at 553 High Street in Dedham, MA to see my work, feel the texture and weight and enjoy the colors of this low fire collection.
Every week, I head over to Powisset Farm in Dover, Ma to pick up my CSA share. This year marks my fourth year as a member. Driving onto the farm is therapeutic… it’s beautiful barn, vista of green fields and bountiful gardens, and, a farm crew that is always upbeat and cheerful. I’ve never left there in all my time not feeling happy that I am part of this community.
This Saturday, my potter friend, Sue Brum of Hog Wild Pottery (who is also a member at the farm) will set up tables filled with our pottery to sell and enjoy a peaceful day chatting with new and old friends alike.
We’ll be in the barn, near the farm stand from 10am to 5pm on Saturday.
Here are some pieces I will be selling that work well with the food in the farm stand and in the CSA share…
perfect bowl for a salad of corn and tomatoes
double dip bowl for salsas
egg separators for baking with farm raised chicken eggs
spoon rests for all the cooking you do
Stop by the farm this Saturday, September 20th between 10am and 5pm to learn about functional pottery and how it works well with local food and flowers in a farm to table approach to living.
