Margaret Larson

Margaret Larson joins us as an Artist in Residence in ceramics,  from the Seagrove area of North Carolina, where she has been working as a studio potter and intern, having received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2019, from Guilford College, with an emphasis on ceramics.

Margaret states of her pottery: “My pots are how I indulge my need to create, while producing somebody’s favorite mug, dish, or jar. I explore themes of nature, play, whimsy, and movement by decorating meticulously thrown functional pots, either with imagery or non-representational compositions. I throw all my attention into my forms and decoration as a way to ground myself or escape reality. Every aspect of the ceramic process lets me process emotions and experiences, and each unique surface and pot I create feels like a little love note or
journal entry - to myself or others. I can imbue all my care, love, and emotion into an individual piece, and the accessibility and daily interactivity of pottery allows me to share that with friends or strangers. My favorite moments are in the studio decorating, and making myself or others laugh with an idea…”
