Call for Help
It’s time for Chapter 2:
Unfortunately, we are all still dealing with Covid 19 and we all must continue to press into hope! The Village Potters Clay Center is not out of the woods yet. The amazing support we received from the project excited the whole TVPCC team (who are now back to work) to take the torch and carry on the mission with a second round of Vessels of Hope: Chapter 2. The Potters participating are: Lori Theriault, Judi Harwood, Christine Henry, Julia Mann, Tori Motyl and Katie Meili Messersmith.
Tori is offering 50 – 1lb hand thrown baskets featuring a natural reed handle. They’ll be glazed in a variety of colors that are sure to bring a subtle vibrancy to whatever space they occupy.. If you’d like to support The Village Potters Clay Center and our community during this time check out with one of Katie’s vessels today by adding one to the cart. You will be notified prior to pick up or shipping. These pieces are being made now and will take a bit more time to be finished, fired, glazed, fired again, and ready to be in your hands and homes.
“How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives” Annie Dillard. I want to spend my life making art, even when things seem hard. Participating in this project is a way for me to do that and support me and my fellow artists at The Village Potters at the same time.” – Tori Motyl
Discovering new ways to sustain The Village Potters Clay Center during this season of closure is our primary job now. As Sarah continues to apply for loans and grants and we all choose hope each day. Now that we have reopened and we are all back in the studio we are all hard at work, throwing, handbuilding, carving, and glazing and saggar firing these vessels each unique to each potter. Just as every vessel is unique so is each potter. Watch for demonstrations on our Facebook and Instagram pages where we will be sowing the seeds of hope and sharing our thoughts and our process.
*You can order more than one and give them as gifts.
