Unique pottery on exhibit at library
WARDSBORO- The Wardsboro Library will exhibit unique pieces of pottery created by Erin Stewart and Will Finkel. The exhibit will carry over through the month of January.
Finkel took his first pottery class when he was 5, and never looked back. He has spent the majority of his life working in, learning about or teaching clay all across the country. His work has drawn acclaim for its style, lightness, and particularly the colors that he has invented in his glazes over the years
Stewart has spent her life in one form of artistic expression or another: from poetry, to music, to painting, but she found ceramics while pursuing her undergraduate degree at Keene State and has stayed in love with the medium ever since. She has been able to combine a whimsical fluidity in her thrown pots with extraordinarily detailed painted surfaces.
Finkel and Stewart met when they became studio mates in 2013. Several years of friendship led to dating and to a partnership that has embraced all parts of their lives including their art. His thrown pieces have become the canvas for her drawings and designs.
The couple moved to Will’s hometown of Wardsboro in 2018, and are slowly moving forward toward their dream of building a pottery studio on their hill, a studio that they hope will one day serve as a place for everyone in the community to have the opportunity to share in their love and play with some clay.
Their art is on display at the library at 170 Main Street during library hours, Monday and Thursday from 10 am to 1 pm, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9 am to 1 pm.. For more information call (802) 896-6988 or visit www.wardsboropubliclibrary.org.
