Cynthia is an incredibly influential member of the ceramics community, educating and mentoring ceramic artists the world over. Joining her in this show is Floyd, Virginia potter Sarah McCarthy. Sarah's stoneware pottery has a pleasing, earthy palette and serves to accentuate the beauty of food and daily rituals. Her playful carvings and birds, perched here and there, create a sense of warmth and whimsy, light and beauty.
