Featured Artist: Gabrielle Schaffner
July's Retail Gallery window features the work of Gabrielle Schaffner, a ceramic artist living and working in Fort Point, Boston. Gabrielle, originally of Brooklyn, NY, has in recent years gravitated towards porcelain as her primary medium; the perfect blank canvas for her serene illustrations drawn from domestic life, nature, and archaeology. Her work is hand built or thrown on the potter's wheel, and is influenced by her love of cooking. Gabrielle writes. "I like a plate that looks good with food, a cup that holds plenty of caffe latte, and a pitcher that doesn't drip. I always need little bowls and tiny dishes, and so I make a variety of them."
As always, your purchases support the artists and SAC education and outreach programs.
