Paula Shalan is the second in three generations of potters. Educated at Sarah Lawrence College and The Art Institute of Chicago, she exhibits nationally at galleries and retail shows, including The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show and The Smithsonian Craft Show. She recently received a national award for sustainability at the Smithsonian Craft Show. Participating as an artist-in-residence at both Acadia National Park and The Dune Shacks on the Outer Cape has inspired her current work. "My work is a quiet tribute to the details found in nature."
