Melt me. Mold me. Fill me. Use me. I’m tempted to take a pottery class now….or maybe I’ll just start a collection of Frances Palmer Pottery!
Yesterday, I had the distinct privilege of hearing the charming Frances Palmer present her work to our little garden club. Trained as an art historian, she has always created with her hands. First print work and now as a potter and gardener. “I don’t make or grow things to hold onto them, but rather to send them out into the world for others to live with and enjoy.”
We were all deeply moved by her artistry, both in the creating of the containers and the growing and selection of the flowers. Dahlias are her favorites.
Let’s just say, we’re already talking about a road trip to visit her renown gardens and potter’s studio. Here’s a glimpse into her resplendent world.
