Colleen McCall is a full-time studio potter. After earning her graduate degree in life-size figure sculpture from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University, she discovered the joy of making pottery for others when her children were young. Colleen continues to excite wonder and cheer with her colorful designs creating a unique contemporary vintage aesthetic. Of course she is an avid thrifter, pattern collector, gardener, kayaker and modern dance enthusiast.
She has an obsession with color and tolerates winters in upstate New York by painting vibrant floral patterns on her handmade pottery. Her inspiration varies from natural realistic blooms to stylized abstract florals. Vintage textiles, wall coverings and historical depictions of flowers from all over the world are all part of the mix to create fresh functional heirloom quality dinnerware, home and garden decor.
