Mother’s Day Sale this Saturday

event, sale, shop local, shop small

As an artist, I work in small batches to create collections in clay like a painter creates a painting. The difference being that one can lift a piece out of my “painting” and interact with it. During the pandemic, I’ve spent my time working in my home studio, teaching art virtually and caring for my family. In the winter months, I worked on a collection entitled “Dreaming of a tropical vacation” because I was. This spring, I have returned to the decorator series to craft new work that reflects the home. Perhaps it was watching the birds out my kitchen window and tending to the plants growing in my house that my collections reflect these moments in time. I considered the simple pleasures of filling vases with flowers, setting the table for the family meal and enjoying the way light interacts with glazed pottery in use. After all, the art an artist creates reflects the life they live.

I’m selling my small batch pottery collections this weekend outdoors in Westwood, MA with four artist friends. We had a wonderful time safely interacting with customers last fall and have decided that a Pop Up Mother’s Day Sale on Saturday, May 8th from 11am – 3pm would be the perfect environment to sell our artwork. We will be following all the safety protocols for a safe selling experience. My table will be set up outside of Decor and More flanked by the other artists. It is a rain or shine event. Please stop in on Saturday to shop at 695 High Street (Post Office Plaza) in Westwood, MA.

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.

Vases

IMG_2591I was at the Fuller Craft Museum to see an exhibit entitled “Game Changers” when I spotted these tiny vases by Sandra Byers. It got me thinking about spring and the kind of vases you can create as bud vases.

IMG_3147These vases above and below were for sale at the Museum of Fine Arts gift shop. The variety of shapes are interesting.

IMG_3148I started making some of my own that I think will make nice gifts for Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day.

As a member of the Dedham Square Artist Guild, I gallery sit 6 hours each month. Wednesday, March 26th is my day at the Gallery and I can’t wait!

I will be bringing in pieces from my Spring 2014 collection. This collection was influenced by a family trip to Turks & Caicos. Soft ocean blues and tropical greens work well with peachy tones from the sand. Shell imprints, basket weaves, patterns from the trip embellish the surfaces of plates, dishes, tumblers and bowls.

Mix and match within this collection to create a wedding or birthday gift. Don’t forget Mom this Mother’s Day (May 11th). Pick up a piece for your Easter gathering and leave it for the hostess.
