Skunk Cabbage was the first sign that Winter was passing. When we moved to CT and I took up pottery, I would look out the backyard at our stream and with such excitement know that spring was around the corner because of those plump green leaves pushing through the soil. I have been a potter for 22 years now and still find the textures, lines and shapes of nature to be such an inspiration.
I look to my garden to embellish my pieces with leaves and berries, making each piece one of a kind. I believe that we should engage with with art so my pieces can go from oven to the table, to the dishwasher - making them part of your daily aesthetic!
