New Canaan Garden Club Presents Frances Palmer: Life In The Studio

December 9, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am


Please join us for this live webinar on Wednesday December 9th at 9:30 AM EST.

Co-presented with the New Canaan Garden Club, we welcome Connecticut artist Frances Palmer, whose perfectly imperfect pots, vases, and vessels are coveted by collectors and featured design exhibitions. Frances has allowed her passion for the pottery wheel to spin her in myriad directions, including authorship, much to the delight of connoisseurs of her craft. In this live webinar, Frances will speak about her art and her new book, Life in the Studio.

Copies of Life in the Studio are available at Elm Street Books.


Frances Palmer has been making ceramics since 1987. She was trained as an art historian, yet always made work with her hands. First as a printmaker and now as a potter and gardener, Frances loves the process of changing ideas into form. She doesn’t make or grow things to hold onto them, but rather to send them out into the world for others to live with and enjoy. Her handmade ceramics are functional art – dishware or vases that can be used on a daily basis.
