Anna Kasabian, a local artist on the North Shore of Massachusetts working under the name Snowbound Pottery, emailed me in January with photos of her work. I was instantly taken with the delicate shapes and natural feel. The pieces are sweet but not precious or cloying. The white vases and and bowls themselves resemble flowers, with uneven scalloped edges and petal-like feet. I was unsurprised to learn that she makes everything by hand, without a wheel. When I responded to her mail saying I loved her work, she graciously sent me a tiny dish so I could see it and feel it. Her work is even more lovely in person.
