Colleen McCall

Artist Statement

“Decorated inside and out, from top to bottom, my brightly patterned pottery feeds my obsession for color and texture. My inspiration varies from natural realistic blooms to stylized abstract florals. Vintage textiles, wall coverings and global folk art are all part of the mix to create fresh functional heirloom quality dinnerware, home and garden décor.
