MUD MOMMY POTTERY
A boat can represent many things: a tool of survival, safe passage, status symbol, and to Becky Brandt, a reoccurring theme throughout her life. Becky graduated from Maine College of Art, Portland, ME, with a BFA in Painting in 2005. Always "hands-on" with her work, she gravitated from painting, embroidery, and collage to ceramics. Her art continues to be influenced by her immediate environment–living near the ocean and the "Swampscott Dory"–and the desire to have her artwork be functional. She has since been dedicated to hand-building boats mainly to be homes for plants.
