Bonnie Garaventi

An artist who has crafted soulful & whimsical objects out of everything from silver to soap,
Bonnie’s current focus is ceramics. As a potter, her work is inspired by the elemental energies
of the natural world that infuses her life on Cape Cod. Working in stoneware and porcelain
clay, her pieces often combine both wheel throwing and hand building techniques.

Her studies include Acorn Gallery School of Art in Marblehead, MA and The Clay School in Lynn,

If you happen to find yourself strolling the trails along Scorton Creek in East Sandwich, MA,
keep your eyes open for one of her garden gnomes – they’ve been known to escape into these
woods from her nearby home studio.

About Bonnie’s North Atlantic Right Whale and Humpback Whale wall sculptures:

Several years ago, a pod of North Atlantic Right Whales spent 2 weeks in the waters just off Bonnie’s home on the north shore of Boston. Known as an “urban whale” they migrate
through shipping lanes, they are slow moving and fall to boat strikes and entanglements.
Their birth rates are low and their numbers have declined 26% since 2010. Today, there are less
than 360 left. Moved by their beauty, story and impending extinction, the experience inspired
her whale collection. A portion of the sales from this collection are donated to WDC (Whale &
Dolphin Conservation)
