Guests can find Meghan Bernard throwing pots, glazing or working on an inlay design in her backyard studio at any point in the day. Her home is tucked in a Hendersonville neighborhood lush with trees, so it’s no surprise that Meghan’s designs are inspired by the flora and fauna surrounding her.
A Southern Highland Craft Guild member, Meghan creates wheel-thrown porcelain which is then carved and inlaid with colorful underglaze and finished with food-safe glazes. Her scenes on the pottery tend to be whimsical and stem from the plants and animals in her gardens and neighborhood.
Meghan says she loves making the objects that people use during their daily rituals, such as their favorite coffee cup that starts the day, the serving bowl that completes a family gathering, or the teapot that brings drama and humor to a collection. “Each piece is from my hand to yours, as a tactile reminder to appreciate the moment and those you share it with.”
Her studio is currently closed, with a reopening planned for summer 2022. She is best reached by email at Meghanbernardpottery@gmail.com. Her website is www.meghanbernardpottery.com
