Brick Pond Handworks is one of the Massachusetts potteries that continue the tradition of the original Dedham Pottery. Mary W. DeCaprio, a classically trained artist with degrees from Boston University (MFA) and the Kansas City Art Institute (BFA), founded Brick Pond Handworks in 1988. She has taken Dedham Pottery in a new direction by making Christmas ornaments that reflect her own creativity and interests. Nature, history, personal experience and pure imagination provide the inspiration for each design. Mary’s special interests in fine art, wildlife, gardening, and antiques provide additional sources of inspiration.
