Pottery by Sonata Arrowood

I'm so excited to have space at Cottage on Dodge that allows for guest artists to join me each month. In August, I will be joined by Sonata Arrowood. Here's a little bit more about Sonata and her work: 

Hi I’m Sonata! I’m a wife, mom, student and the business owner of Solder and Ceramics. I started taking ceramic classes in 2017 at the MacNider Art Museum in Mason City, Iowa. After losing my mother-in-law to cancer in 2016, I had to find a positive outlet to deal with those feelings of grief. I came across an article where someone talked about taking ceramic classes and that it helped them deal with grief, so that’s how my journey with ceramics started. It has been very helpful dealing with those emotions and not only those feels of grief making pottery helps me relax. Other than family, it is my other happy space where I can sit and think about what I would like to create. It’s a very heart warming feeling knowing that something you’ve created with your heart and hands brings, joy, comfort and peace to someone’s life in hard times and good times. To me it’s about helping someone’s heart heal.
