In a statement about her art, Ms. Flynn says, “My intention is to interject a quirky humor and a sense of jest into my world of functional ceramics. I do this by using a variety of playful forms coupled with a vibrant palette of painted surfaces. The result is a richly diverse body of work that celebrates the everyday.” Please join us for a great hands-on studio day. All materials and lunch are included.
