My Summer in the Blithewold Gardens

Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum in Bristol RI hosted a 2016 season-long outdoor exhibit of my monumental garden urns. The 18 large vessels in Destinations and Sanctuaries: Clay Vessels in the Garden married classical proportions with the influence of the place.

Organic forms suggestive of seed pod, cocoon, and hive emerged as I made the series through the winter and spring of 2016. I was pleased to hear more than one visitor say, “The pieces look as though they grew here!”
