Our Potters

  • Jennifer Rose, Beau Chien Pottery

    “My name is Jennifer Rose. I have always had a great appreciation for ceramic art and in 2001, I became a self-taught potter after taking a ceramics class and falling in love with the process. Over the years I have created a variety of one-of-a-kind stoneware vessels from animal urns, and planters, to mugs and tea bag holders. I am always trying to expand, evolve and grow my art. I have dabbled in Raku, Wood firings, as well as variations of electric kiln firings.”

    “I am a local potter and belong to a pottery co op in Sharon, Massachusetts. I specialize in making functional pieces such as bowls and mugs and I enjoy the thought of people using my pottery in their daily life. My undergraduate degree was in Studio Art and Psychology with an emphasis in pottery and sculpture. After a career teaching Special Education and working in the fitness field I finally returned to creating pottery about 10 years ago. It is a wonderful way to express myself creatively and to connect with the muddy, earthiness of clay.”

  • Susan Brum, Hog Wild Pottery

    "I grew up on a pig farm in NH and have always loved most things “Pig”. It’s only natural that I called my business Hog Wild Pottery. I make functional art, such as unique berry bowls, garlic keepers, butter keepers, funky pitcher vases, Bird baths, watering cans, mugs, creamers, sugar bowls, salt silos, pepper pens, farm animal sculptures/business card holders, platters, bowls & much more. All of my pottery is made locally at Potters Place in Sharon MA."

    Clay is the vessel from which my inner voice translates best.

    I am fascinated by the feel of the clay in my hands and the connections I make while working at my potter's wheel. My love of color, drawing, surface decoration and functionality play a role in creating my work that is autobiographical by nature. My goal is to bring beauty to everyday living with my unique line of one of a kind pottery.

    I received my Studio Art Degree from Skidmore College, continuing with additional classes at the Museum School of Fine Arts Boston, Art Institute of Boston, and Harvard University. I continue learning with workshops and classes annually to add new tools to my toolbox.

    Teaching art and craft has become an important part of my artistic journey. Classes, workshops and individual lessons are available to all ages. Currently my pottery classes are in Dedham at Motherbrook Arts for adults. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional art classes for children and teens are offered in Westwood.

  • Tara Villanova

    I grew up in the very rural Northwest corner of RI, in Foster-Glocester. My pottery combines the burgundies, greens, browns and textures of the woods and lakes of my hometown, with the blues, turquoise, grays and sparkling shimmer of the beautiful RI coast. I earned my BFA from RI School of Design as a ceramics major. For almost twenty years I had a career in advertising as a layout artist, then a creative director. Thankfully, this allowed me to put myself through grad school to earn a Masters in Art Education and to raise my two sons. I currently love teaching Art from K through 5th grade in Cumberland, RI. Pottery continues to be my creative outlet and one I can't live without! I sell at artisan fairs and art galleries in RI.
