Becky Garrity's "lively people" series reminds us that togetherness enhances Becky Garrity potteryhealth and happiness. In support of each individual vision for a better world, we need to reach out to each other. In fact, a better world can only be attained when we rely on each other. As she draws the figures, the direction and variety of lines create a Becky Garrity's potterymovement and life of their own. Becky is continually surprised by the subtle variations that suggest different cultures, ages, races and occupations. A life of action and interaction emerges from the surface of the vessel reflecting the joy we feel when we are appreciated and encouraged by those around us!
You can see more examples of Becky's work at the Association of Virginia Artisans website.
