“Anchored by the work of Sequoia Miller, Lynn Duryea, and Paul Heroux, “Ceramics September” is a superb showcase of some of today’s most brilliant and inventive craft artists. Hats off to the Turtle Gallery for devoting quality gallery time to this art form. Ceramic art is alive and thriving in Deer Isle.”

These lidded vessels were originally shown at the Bellevue Art Museum in an impactful single group.
