Frances Palmer on Martha Stewart TV at 1pm + At The Glass House Design Store

Vases by Francis Palmer

One of the Glass House’s first commissioned artists, Weston, CT-based Frances Palmer, designed her unique, irreverently shaped bowls and vases based on inspiration from Philip Johnson and David Whitney’s succulent garden located on the Glass House property.

“In my new collection for the Glass House, I have made shapes both organic and modern. The vases echo the forms and geometry of the buildings and sculptures on the property.  The white and pewter glazes are inspired by the colors of nature through the Glass House windows.”

Frances Palmer Pottery, Select Designs Available Exclusively At the Glass House Design Store

Palmer, featured in the September issue of Connecticut Cottages & Gardens Magazine, will air in a segment on Martha Stewart TV today, October 7th, 2011 at 1pm on the Hallmark Channel. Catch the show, and see her work in person at the Glass House Design Store, 199 Elm Street, New Canaan, CT 06840.
