Mame McKee

Mame grew up in Poultney, Vermont and moved to magnificent Duxbury 25 years ago. She has taught clay to adults and children for 19 years and is most inspired by the opportunity of helping people find their creative side!

Her own work reflects the rhythm of the mountains and rivers and forest.
