The period leading up to the Jewish New Year is a time of reflection and T’Shuvah; returning to one’s true self. Re-capturing youthful enthusiasm can be an elusive endeavor. Member potter Susan Horowitz has taken this time to reconnect with the wonder and awe of creating with clay which inspired her to become a potter in the first place. She has made covered jars, small bowls, drinking vessels, and pots outside her usual production line and color palette. This September, Maine Potters' Market will feature Horowitz’s beautifully handcrafted pieces.
