linden Tree Pottery


"The linden tree reminds me of new life and beauty out of the earth. In the Spring of 1998, while living in Prague, Czech Republic, I visited the graveyard of the Terezin concentration camp while the lindens were in full bloom. This was the first time I had encountered the heavenly smell that is the linden blossom. That memory, thoughts, sights and smell combined, has stayed with me as a significant moment of realization that even in the midst of sorrow and wrongness there can be new life and beauty. It is my hope that my stoneware can be a reminder of the simple beauty that still exists in the world."
