Skaneateles artist, Jan Fairhurst will be appearing on Sunday, July 11th during the Lavender Festival.

I've been making and selling stoneware pottery for the last 15 years using the old kick wheel my father bought me 30 years ago to promote an entrepreneurial spirit. I keep thinking I should upgrade to an electric wheel but I love the control I get with my own legs and besides, every time I'm kicking away I think of my dad fondly.

My stoneware pottery is practical and functional, yet I try to create graceful lines with each piece. I relish the earthy quality of stoneware clay but my work is lighter than much of the pottery you often find.
