During the months of May and June our 3D featured artist is clay artist Bonnie Benande, who has been creating pottery since 1978. Bonnie’s pieces are functional as well as artistically beautiful. She is inspired by the flora and fauna of southwest Florida and often includes plant and ocean motifs in her work. She uses glazes which suggest the soft, subtle hues of the ocean, and the earthy tones of local vegetation. Bonnie enjoys creating beautiful, useful art for others to enjoy.
