Last works of Sandra McKenzie

We received a final shipment of pottery from Sandra McKenzie Studio in Washington, Illinois.

After 42 years,  with mixture of joy and sadness Sandra closed her gallery. We are fortunate to have a few casseroles, small baskets, cookie jars and a few small rabbits…. perfect Easter addition.
