The history of civilization is recorded in scraps of fiber and on shards of pottery. As a weaver and a potter, Susan Phillips is inspired by the beauty and the ingenuity of the everyday objects that our ancestors created under extraordinarily difficult conditions. She feels a strong connection to their struggles to create beauty in very functional pieces. She hopes that future potters will find a touch of beauty and inspiration from her work.
We have carried her birdhouses in the past. These lanterns are great for the garden or patio, giving a Eastern look to the setting. The salamander birdbath features the native salamanders. Her pine cone birdhouse is quite popular this summer and makes for a lovely gift.
