Hi,  I’m Lynn Marie Dwyer, and I am a mixed-media artist working primarily in clay.

I was raised on the cliffs of Manomet DSCN1599Beach, Massachusetts, moved eventually to Florida, and now I live on the side of a mountain in rural North Georgia.

I love to capture motion in my art – I love a variety of perspectives… texture: metal with clay contrasting the strong with the fragile – alternative-firing processes creating new effects…. I’m always trying something IMG_4809different. I specialize in handbuilt sculpture.  I rarely make the same thing twice.

Creating is a spiritual aspect in my life;  art to me is very intimate. When I create, I am completely in it.  Time looses meaning. And through my life, have learned tons from dissecting my own work after making it.  And 734033_158000414359971_1878323946_nbeing the seeker that I am, I love getting those perspectives.

For years before clay, I was known as The Mad Hatter, a fiber artist creating functional art with original hats and adornments that made people smile.  Until I met clay, and fell in love. I put down the wool.

IMG_2451I have  continued to teach primitive handbuilding with Clay to children and adults here, introducing new perspective and having the experience of creating with other people, brings a great inspiration to me.  Take a workshop! They are always geared toward every skill level.
