Artist's homes are always so unique and inspiring. I may be biased, as I'm an artist myself, but in all my years of shooting interiors I have always found creative people's homes to be the most interesting spaces to photograph. And another that follows suit is potter, Lucy Fagella's farmhouse in Western Mass.
It's charming, cozy, warm, bright, inviting...I could go on. Lucy and her partner, Terri redid the kitchen using wood and glass from an old barn that was torn down on the property when they moved in. They also renovated the barn attached to the home into Lucy's pottery studio. It once housed hay and tractor equipment and is now a beautiful space for Lucy to work in and teach her pottery classes. They have a large garden, a greenhouse and chickens that sustain them for the majority of the year.
Lucy was also kind enough to let me watch her work. I had never seen a potter throw before so I was slightly freaking out with excitement while I was watching her do her thing. Lucy is incredibly talented and I love her pottery. The green/blue hues she uses are so soothing..I drink my morning tea out of one of her mugs every morning and it makes my day!
