The textured items reflect the rural landscape and lifestyle of the community of Pulltight where I live. The wavy lines are the creek that runs through the property. The straight lines are the fields where corn grows in the summer and the deer and turkey live in the winter. The round bumps are the trees and bushes that make up much of the forested landscape. The square textures are the deer stands in the forest. You may also find a spider web or two.

Who is Lee Marshall of Silver Ridge Pottery? -Lee grew up in Louisville KY, went to Sacred Heart Academy and worked at Bremner Bisquit Co. while getting an AS in mechanical engineering. She later obtained a BS in engineering from Michigan State University and an MBA from Keller Graduate School in Chicago. She spent 30 years in “Corporate” as an engineer and executive in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. During this time she discovered pottery making. She made so much pottery she didn’t know what to do with it, so she did her first art fair. When someone gave her money for pots she couldn’t give away to friends and family, it opened her eyes to many possibilities. In the 90’s, Lee realized that she could leave corporate America behind and devote her time to her passion of making pots. So she spent 2 years searching for property, designing the house and studio, and using her engineering skills to manage the building project. Six years ago, Lee established Silver Ridge Pottery on a 10-acre mountainside just off Chicken Road in the small community of Pulltight, Tennessee, about an hour east of Nashville. She now produces porcelain vessels which can be seen at galleries, gift shops and art fairs all over the United States.
