The ‘Legacy’ Show featuring the Work of Sharon Hosley
Sharon was an award-winning potter with twenty-five years’ experience. She developed an interest in design and color on terra cotta clay and was recognized for her fine work throughout Connecticut and New York. Winning many awards, she was represented in fine craft shows throughout New England and sold work in galleries and shops.
Hosley’s terra cotta pottery is both functional and non-functional, decorated with brightly colored images including animals, insects, and vegetation. Each piece is a medley of vivid colors. The glaze is applied in three coats and the surface background is carved away to achieve a raised design effect. Animals are sometimes sculpted as accents to form vessel lids, handles or feet.
On December 2 & 3, Sharon's work will be sold at The Potere, 44 Hamre Lane in Branford from 10 am - 4 pm. The day will be a celebration of her rich life with proceeds benefitting Shoreline Arts Alliance's Future Choices Program to recognize and support the passion and talent of local high school students and Guilford Art Center.
