Thanks, Elinor, for supporting Potters for Peace and the potters of Nicaragua!

Our wonderful, intrepid volunteer Elinor Maroney is back home in Washington after a year in Nicaragua.  Once her brigade ended in February 2014, she re-visited each community to work  intensively for one or two weeks.  This type of peer to peer mentoring is invaluable to all artists, and particularly those who live in isolated villages as do the Nica potters we work with.
