Leslie Green Guilbault
After working for 13 years as a senior administrator at Colgate University and 3 years as a project manager in contract pharmaceutical manufacturing, Leslie stepped away from cubicle life in 2012 to become a full-time potter and bone carver. She started her own business, LGG Creative Art, and now has 15 distinct lines of pottery and unique carved bone sculptures and jewelry that she creates in her studio in Hamilton, NY and sells at art shows, on her Etsy site, and in 31 galleries and gift shops across eight states.Leslie is a self-taught artist who enjoys experimenting with different styles of work and is always (and I mean ALWAYS) tweaking her designs to create new collections that reflect her current interests. Her display in Cazenovia Artisans features her Botanical Collection (freehand painted and carved floral designs on vases and bowls) and Cherry Blossoms (matte black vases and functional serving pieces with deeply carved flowers and branches)—both of which are often referred to as “perfect wedding gifts” by customers at art shows. As a counterpoint to the black and white, Leslie will also be selling her Colorshot Collection, which features fun, bright colors on functional serving pieces, as well as her Tiny Pots—wheelthrown miniatures with fused glass centers—perfect for rings and pills by the sink, salts and spices, and, of course, gifts for just about any occasion.Leslie does custom orders for homes, offices, and wholesale accounts in a wide range of sizes, styles, and price ranges and invites customers to take the beautiful 25 minute drive from Cazenovia to visit her studio and ceramics gallery in person. Leslie offers private lessons on wheel throwing and “paint your own pottery” private parties and group classes. Please see her website for photos of her current collections, upcoming art shows, and class information and follow her on Instagram to see photos of her newest work, fresh from the kiln.
