An unconventional beginning


Lindsey never intended to pursue a career in clay. As an avid horsewoman, riding horses since age 4, her logical career path out of high school was in veterinary medicine. She attended the University of Vermont and graduated in 2006 with a B.S. in Animal Science. 

If you are not familiar with Vermont, the winters are quite cold and Lindsey does not like the cold. Why did she attend that school then? Because of scholarships and financial aid and they had some interesting alternative housing situations that she found intriguing. 

UVM is home to the Living/Learning center with themed suites where students live together based on a common interest. The interests can range from language-based to environmental activists to art. Lindsey first applied to 'Animalia' with mostly pre-vet/animal science majors but did not get placed in that suite. Instead, she lived in the Pottery suite which turned out to be the most influential aspect of her college career. 

Living with 12 other people who have an interest in pottery gave her 24-hr access to the studio in the same building, a weekly class, and the resource of community members who were involved in the studio. Although Lindsey had begun her ceramics endeavors in high school, she was able to further develop and expand her skills under the direction of Joan Watson. She learned how to make clay and glazes, fire the gas and electric kilns and begin her journey into crystalline glazes. 

Because the weather was so cold and Lindsey did not enjoy the outdoor winter activities, she spent the majority of the time in the studio. By scheduling classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, there were days where she could dive deep into projects without having to bear the frigid temperatures outside. 

Before completing her degree, she realized that veterinary school was not her preferred path and chose the focus more on some business classes to round out her education. After graduating, she returned home to Massachusetts and attended ceramics classes as UMASS Dartmouth and eventually enrolled in their Post Baccalaureate program to continue her ceramics education which was completed in 2008. 

Lindsey then spent a few years developing her craft and acquiring more equipment as she was building up her own studio. In the fall of 2012 she had her eye set on a dilapidated  rental property and decided to jump in, renovate the space and open her own studio and retail gallery in Rehoboth, MA.

A few years later, in the summer of 2015, she and her husband purchased a property in Tiverton, RI to combine studio and living spaces. Serendipitously, the south coast area is brimming with talented artists of all mediums and Lindsey was able to join the South Coast Artists organization. The SCA holds monthly meetings and hosts two Open Studio Tours with 65-75 artists in the surrounding three towns during the summer. Being a member of the SCA introduced Lindsey to a network of talented artists who have been able to offer their knowledge and wisdom as full-time artists. 

Lindsey has always enjoyed the outdoors, gardening and nature. In her "spare" time, she tends to her gardens and vegetables, and still works with horses but her main focus is on pottery.  


Clay possesses the remarkable ability to take on any form imagined by its creator. It can be pulled, stretched, spun, twisted, molded and filled into new shapes to take on a new life and use. Its final state can be functional, decorative or some combination thereof. However, a certain level of skills and knowledge are required to be able to achieve the desired outcome. 

I have enjoyed exploring the limits of clay, only to find that there are few. One ‘unsuccessful’ result actually leads to something amazing upon further discovery. My work represents a small sampling of clay techniques and forms to demonstrate some of these discoveries. 

While most artists choose to explore one technique and study it extensively; I have difficulty with that path. I am constantly excited by new possibilities and various interests- with each batch of work leading somewhere else. To some, my work looks as though it is created by many different people. Although the finished pieces differ, I strive to create work with an element of refined cleanliness and elegance. Nature and animals are a recurring influence in how the piece moves or is decorated - from floral in decoration, flowing movement in the form, textured with a raku finish, deep and invigorating in the glazed surface, or by growing crystals in the glaze. 

These varied techniques are much more than a technical process involving recipes and firing schedules. It involves understanding the clay; understanding what crystals are, how they grow, their ingredients and how they react; understanding the fire and heat to melt the materials together, and developing a close relationship with the kiln. To really know the glaze and when to use it is a skill that requires research, time, and sensitivity in order to achieve artistic expression. 

All of these elements are combined to create something useful. The sculptural pieces serve to stimulate the imagination; they ask you to look into the surface and wonder how it was created. The functional pieces are designed to be used in daily life. That you may look closer at something familiar; take the time to slow down and contemplate while enjoying a cup of tea or new creation in the kitchen. That the handles are comfortable to hold; the bowls enhance your meal; the vases accentuate your home. That the techniques used encourage you to look deeper into the piece and wonder. For wonder keeps our imagination alive and allows us to discover things we would otherwise overlook and explore all the possibilities the world has to offer.
