Auction Description

Smithsonian Craft Optimism - Paula Shalan by Paula Shalan
I respect our earth's limited resources by employing traditional methods of hand-building, using local clay and firing with recycled fuel. My detailed seedpods express the importance of biodiversity for the health of our forests. Each seedpod conveys hope as it lays dormant, waiting to burst forth with its unique contribution to a healthy ecosystem. You are welcome to contact me if you have any questions or would like help in picking out a collection. I am happy to offer a personal or group studio tour via zoom. stampedearth@gmail.com Each item is one of a kind. If an item you want has SOLD, please reach out and I can make a similar one.
