Fighting the Cancer Battle Raffle

I am raffling off a pottery bowl this holiday season for a friend who is battling Breast Cancer.  Every year a few friends (Connie Norman and Chad Blakely)and I  get together to hold a holiday art show and sale called “Among Friends.”    This year we are doing all we can to help as artists raise a few dollars for Chad’s sister Heather Blakely-Voyles as she battles Breast Cancer.  Chad is donating all of his card sales from the show and Connie and I are each raffling off a piece of our work.  Please help in this effort and you might just win a beautiful bowl but you will also go away knowing you helped a friend in need. The tickets are $1.33 a piece.  Among Friends is December 9-11 if  you would like to come take a look! Thanks, Maura

Artist Statement

Maura Jacobsen lives in Wyoming with her

husband and thier three children.  Maura has

been a studio potter for the past ten years.

All of her work is hand thrown and hand painted

stoneware.  It is made for everyday life.  The fun

patterns and sayings are a reflection of where

she lives and the silly things her children say.

She loves to take images from life, simplify them,

paint in a little color, go against the rules and

make people smile.

Examples of hand-thrown, hand-painted pottery.
