Penny Parnes

Penny Parnes has always loved pottery, both owning it and watching potters throw clay on the wheel.   It seems like magic how, from a lump of clay and a wheel, a pot can take shape.  She wanted so much to be able to do that.

Penny started potting around 2000 as a way to deal with a difficult event in her life.  After taking classes and working elsewhere, she became a member of The Potter’s Studio in 2003.

While she loves hand-built pieces and finds their organic nature very appealing, she is essentially a wheel-based potter.  Her time at the studio is always peaceful and creative.
