About the Potter…
Born in Lititz, PA in 1961, I have studied art since childhood and developed my passion for working in clay in 1982, while a student under Jack Troy at Juniata College. After college I worked as a banker for 8 months (but I lost interest)! I continued to explore the nature of clay through workshops and an intensive one-year assistantship with Bernville, PA potter John Troup. Pots by de Perrot was established in 1985, a family-run studio and gallery space located behind our home in historic Lititz. Tile became a part of my body of work when I created a “PA Woodlands” donor tile wall for the Lititz Public Library in 1999. This commission opened doors to a new creative mix of leaf motif tiles for tables in wood and wrought iron and accent tiles for kitchens, baths, floors, etc. Recent years have included an expanded line of functional leaf motif pottery as well as many custom tile commissions including the SEASONS of LIFE bas relief carved fireplace at Moravian Manor Retirement Community and a donor tile wall at Asbury Woods Nature Center in Erie, PA.
We love living in our community and we enjoy doing what we can to show our appreciation by contributing our talents to enhance the beauty of projects that can be appreciated by all.
