Clarice Powell – “African Queen”

Clarice Powell, Potter
Founding Director
Clarice’s love for primitive furniture and art was the start of her love of pottery. “Clay tends to have a life of its own Your personal style is guided by the clay and I love the primitive look of my pieces”.
Clarice is a self taught potter. She attended evening pottery classes at FSU learning to throw on a wheel but found that the freedom and organic nature of hand building was what she loved.

Ed Springer, Artist
Founding Director
“All my life I’ve enjoyed drawing and painting. Upon retiring and moving to Apalachicola, I became involved with pastel painting under the instruction of Alice Jean Gibbs. After several years I began painting in oil. Much of my work reflects local subjects and nature.”
