“Roll-up-your-sleeves advice on throwing pottery, growing dahlias, cooking her tried-and-true recipes, and everything in between.”—Martha Stewart Living“Suited to any type of creative, offering up lessons on inspiration and creativity that are sure to bring out your inner talent.” —House Beautiful, Best New Design Books What makes a creative life? For an artist like Frances Palmer, it’s knitting all of one’s passions—all of one’s creativity—into the whole of life. And what an inspiration it is. A renowned potter, an entrepreneur, a gardener, a photographer, a cook, a beekeeper, Palmer has over the course of three decades caught the attention not only of the countless people who collect and use her ceramics but also of designers and design lovers, writers, and fellow artists who marvel at her example. Now, in her first book, she finally tells her story, in her own words and images, distilling from her experiences lessons that will inspire a new generation of makers and entrepreneurs.Life in the Studio is as beautiful and unexpected as Palmer’s pottery, as breathtakingly colorful as her celebrated dahlias, as intimate as the dinners she hosts in her studio for friends and family. There are insights into making pots—the importance of centering, the discovery that clay has a memory. Strategies for how to turn a passion into a business—the value to be found in collaboration, what it means to persevere, how to develop and stick to a routine that will sustain both enthusiasm and productivity. There are also step-by-step instructions (for throwing her beloved Sabine pot, growing dahlias, building an opulent flower arrangement). Even some of her most tried-and-true recipes. The result is a portrait of a unique artist and a singularly generous manual on how to live a creative life.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a glorious and uplifting book. Frances has an overspilling talent for making the world a more generous place through ceramics, gardens, and food. I loved it." --Edmund de Waal "Frances Palmer is as generous as she is talented, an incredible role model for me and so many other creative people. I've been waiting for this book ever since I discovered Frances's work, and it has exceeded all my expectations. The depth of the subject matter, the heartfelt essays, the beautiful photography, and the wisdom that Frances shares are sure to inspire and change lives." --Erin Benzakein, New York Times bestselling author of Floret Farm's A Year in Flowers "I need two copies of this beautiful book: one to sit proudly on my bookshelves, and one to follow me to my kitchen and garden, where it will soon get covered in fingerprints, dirt, and spots of water. It will be much used and loved." --Bunny Williams
