We have a new ceramic artist in the gallery, Leslie Koehler. I met this potter 15 years ago in Vermont. The first time we met, Leslie introduced herself and told me that I didn’t look like a potter. I laughed and said “Yes, I am.” Obviously, her comment stayed with me. It made me consider what makes you an artist and a potter. Was it because I am a small person? I must not have the strength to slug clay. Was it because I didn’t have clay in my hair and on my clothes? Or, did I lack the aura of being an artist? Hmmm. More to think about. I love Leslie’s majolica work and her painting skills. Please consider one of her pieces when you want a new piece of pottery for your collection or if you need a gift. Plus, she makes custom wedding bowls.
