Barbara Mann of Mann Made Designs – Virginia Ceramic Artist Trunk Show

Fri–Sun, Dec 8–10
Fri- 11 am–7 pm
Sat & Sun- 11am–5 pm


Barbara Mann is a professional, juried artisan. Her designs stem from doodles with playful brushstrokes and sometimes her background in Botany will sneak in. She likes to throw simple, classical form to use as a vehicle for her busy surfaces. For the most part, Barbara paints on greenware and once-fire, which saves energy. Each piece is produced with a loving reverence for the creative process. She says that her work does not attempt to make a social statement or to stretch the boundaries of what we think of as art; art isn’t required to search for the meaning of the cosmos. Her pieces are intended purely for the amusement of the visual sense, not necessarily for the intellect. “Beauty gives our souls a little refreshment so we can get on with the more mundane tasks of life.”

No tickets required.
