   Holly Shaw and Richard Evans create handmade pottery and tile in the Arts and Crafts tradition. At their Meadow Point Studios in Connecticut’s “Quiet Corner ” they are constantly inspired by surrounding nature. Holly, with her background in horticulture, creates leaf vases, jars and tea-pots that almost seem alive.  Richard, with his background in arts and woodwork, hand-crafts  tiles that each feature a bird in the wild.
In June, this writer enjoyed visiting Holly and Richard’s booth at the Regional Farmers Market, held at the Nathan Hale Homestead at Coventry. The photos I took give you a sample of their mature mastery of form and color. You can see more for yourself online at
