Crafts Shop Reopens

Crafts Shop Reopens

Summer is here and there is much activity at the studios of Pottery by Susan and in the Crafts Shop window in the Wave building. Walk by and you’ll see new display shelves, boxes being emptied, and new creations being moved around.

"Pottery by Susan" studios, located on the third floor of the Wave Building, 88-08 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, has been the home of Susan Locke’s clay studio for the past 12 years. It is the only working pottery studio in Rockaway and has been home to several potters over the years, as well as to Norma Allende’s stained glass and sculpture studio and Cecile Kops’ silver and metal studio.

Angella Brown joined the pottery in 2000, and has since been producing pottery with Caribbean design and influence. Brown travels between her home in Kingston, Jamaica where she lives for part of the year. Her work is sought after on the island and is being noticed as well here on the peninsula. Brown loves her home in Jamaica and after a winter working here looks forward to returning to the balmy island climate. Her pottery recalls the brightly colored and decorative work well known in Jamaica.

Brown’s pottery will be featured in the first art show at Pottery by Susan’s craft shop. This will be the first of several shows over the coming year and the opening will feature new works by Angella Brown, as well as other Rockaway artists. Opening night is planned for Friday, August 9, in the street level shop at 88-08 Rockaway Beach Boulevard. It will feature poetry, music and perhaps a surprise or two. Meet the artists as well as many talented Rockaway neighbors.
