Life in the Studio
In a studio next to her house in Connecticut, potter Frances Palmer makes extraordinary pots, vases, and tableware. She then fills these vessels with flowers she grows and food she prepares, and photographs them. Her book is first and foremost an explosion of handcrafted beauty, in lush, living profusion. It’s also a how-to book, and a guide to something many of us crave: a full-circle creative life. In essays accompanying the stunning photography, you’ll learn a lot about making pottery, growing dahlias, working from home, the meditation of repetition, and much more.
