After months of looking for a studio location in the Oyster Bay Area, my mom took me to one of her favorite flower shops in Laurel Hollow, Scarcellas, she suggested that I ask Philip one of the owners, If there was any space available for me. He quickly showed me a small cottage attached to one the green houses. While it was a storage closet at the time I could see the potential. I was excited at the prospect of setting up in such a beautiful space that is so clearly filled with long history. Scarcellas is having its 90th anniversary this year 2022.
Fast forward Ten months and I have fully operational Ceramic studio!
New power has been put in for kiln; I built furniture painted walls; installed insulation and dry wall; got a new sink; made many hundreds of Vases, planters,and sculptures; and have a brand new kiln installed and ready to get to work!
