The Silver City Museum Society will host a trunk show for local potter Mary Giardina on Saturday, February 16, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Museum. The Silver City Museum is located at 312 W. Broadway.
The Silver City Museum Store is excited to offer all of Ms. Giardina’s work, including large vessels, bowls and plates. These items will be for sale on this day only, with a percentage of the sales going to the Silver City Museum Society. The Museum Store regularly sells her pottery, but does not have the space to display large pieces.
Mary Giardina states, "I try to create pottery with complete awareness of the clay and the process needed to shape a piece into a functional form. The decoration evolved from my experimentation with glaze colors and my love of native plants. The flowers are hand carved and then stamped into the clay to form floral arrangements or patterns. Each piece is a unique work of art - no two are alike. All of my items are food, dishwasher, and microwave safe."
The Silver City Museum creates opportunities for residents and visitors to explore, understand and celebrate the rich and diverse cultural heritage of southwestern New Mexico by collecting, preserving, researching and interpreting the region's unique history.
