While attending the ARTBEAT FESTIVAL in Somerville Ma., I came across two artisans work I could not ignore. The first Rebecca Swiller Munn a potter of (Clay-ol-o-gy) at the MUD FLAT GALLERY. Beautifully handcrafted her work displayed a lovely collection of blue/green and brown pottery. They all reminded me of the ocean.
Ron Perssolano, a wood turner from Brimmfield Ma. made these amazing hollowed, pierced & incised vessels and more.... Smooth to the touch and visually tactile. The variety of wood finishes and materials make his work interesting and pure. A HOME IS MORE INTERESTING WITH A FEW JEWELS MADE BY THE HAND.
