Cynthia Curtis Pottery is close to the Paper House, wooded trails and quarries in Pigeon Cove. Cynthia’s popular ocean-inspired creations include coral vases, undersea lamps, berry bowls, lobster and starfish ornaments, scallop and clamshells, mugs, and wedding platters. Students create stoneware functional dishes on the pottery wheels in addition to crafting unique hand-built sculptural art pieces (pinch pots, coil pots, slab pieces, sculpture) in a relaxed environment. Her work may be found on Rocky Neck in Gloucester, Bearskin Neck in Rockport, both destinations named by the Mass Cultural Council and at galleries and shops on Cape Ann. Come see what all the fun is about!

Boston Globe
Rockport studio will show the work of visually impaired students who are guided by texture and touch
By Brenda J. Buote, Globe Staff, December 10, 2006
With a spinning wheel and equal parts determination and talent, 15-year-old Kayla Bentas is able to transform an ordinary ball of clay and a dab of water into a functional work of art -- a bowl, a mug, or even a vase.
"I love the way it feels, all smooth and wet, with graceful, gentle slopes," Kayla says of the clay she's molding into a bowl, her face beaming. At a nearby table, giggling elementary students examine their works in progress, nimbly running their fingers over the delicate figurines -- a girl with braided hair and a small lizard -- to find flaws. One child holds her creation to her left eye, eager to get a better idea of what it might look like. But even up close, she is able to see only light and shadow. The details elude her.
These children are all legally blind. They must rely on texture and shape to mold their artistic vision, which several of them will share today when their work is displayed at the Cynthia Curtis Pottery holiday show.
