South Shore Potter Fired UP: Barbara Wesson

Posted on July 23, 2016
Filed Under Featured Artists

“I work with clay. Elements derived from the earth.

Forms created through rhythm and motion.

Like the process that completes my work, it fires me up.

Keeps my inner fire burning and sets my soul free.” B Wesson


Looking at Barbara’s pottery, one might not realize the expertise she brings to her art form from other areas.

She has studied Zoology and Botany, is an avid succulent specimen collector, an award-winning landscape designer using zero-scaping techniques, and has designed zoo exhibits integrating native plants of the southwest.

Is that it? Jeez!

Oh yeah – and she’s developed a special technique to fire her pots to retain just the right balance of elements to make plants thrive at any elevation – especially 6,200′.

With all this knowledge of plant environments, she’s mastered the perfect succulent habitat in a pot that feeds her creative energy and passion for living.
