Made for Each Other
A show of functional vessels in pairs & sets

Juried by Adero Kai Willard
Juror’s Biography: An MFA graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, Willard’s pottery contains a depth of layers and colors, reminiscent of fabric swatches, tapestries, and nature. She has been a visiting artist at many arts institutions, the most recent being the Chautauqua Institute in NY. After finishing a Salad Days winter residency at the Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts, where she created over 500 plates for Watershed’s annual summer fundraiser, Willard has gone on to exhibit at Crafts Boston in 2010-11, the Smithsonian Craft Show in DC, and the Ferrin Gallery in Pittsfield, MA.
