McKenzie River Pottery at Washington, IL

On April 20 we made an exciting trip to Washington IL to meet with the ceramic artist Sandra McKenzie. She is a wonderful person and a very accomplished artist. In her cute little workshop we found a variety of ceramic creations, including functional vases, casseroles, bowls or keepsakes with adorable decorations showing different kinds of animals, vegetables and flowers. All is very unique and quirky. We enjoyed our time at McKenzie Studio very much and wanted to share these moments with you.
