We’re continuing our LOVE spotlight series on the incredible collection of local artists you can find at our LoveLocal Collective retail store in Hyannis. This month we’re excited to highlight Holly Heaslip of Bay Scallop Pottery.
Holly is a lifelong Cape Codder and has been creating pottery for over 40 years. Her collection of pottery is largely inspired by our beautiful beaches, specifically her time and love for Sandy Neck. Most of her pieces are all white, with the occasional pop of teal in a starfish or scallop design.
Some of our favorite pieces (think wedding gifts) are her dancing starfish centerpieces that are wildly unique and labor intensive as well as her hand built oyster plates with matching cocktail sauce dish and spoon. Her smaller pieces like spoon rests, sacc boxes, mugs, shell bowls, side dishes and ornaments make great everyday gifts.
Holly, the artist herself, is very sweet and modest and is currently teaching pottery classes (and Tai Chi classes!) at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod.
Her pottery is really the perfect accent to any Cape Cod home!
