Artist of the Month

August 2018 ~ Heather Abel


Heather Abel, owner of Purring Pottery, has always found peace in art. She finds beauty in all things organic, often using them as a medium in her artwork.

Her love for pottery began early on in college after experiencing the purr of her wheel as she formed a bowl from what was once just a lump of clay.

Heather has recently opened her own pottery studio where she creates her artistically beautiful yet functioning pottery which is later found everywhere from art shows to kitchens.




Each month, Jonathan Trumbull Library displays the work of a local artist.
