The Cheerful Vase
the smile catcher
Welcome to Maryhill Clayworks Studio Store. Assembled here are my best designs for your shopping pleasure. You may find a beautiful bowl for yourself, a wedding or baby gift, or an ornament for all seasons. I hand make each piece in my Freeville, NY studio in the Finger Lakes region. I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from Boston University in 1985 and worked as a portrait sculptor for a monument company in Barre, VT and as a designer for the MacKenzie-Childs pottery company in Aurora, NY.
My purpose is to create beautiful and joyful things for you to use.
All the best to you.
