When Marcia Taylor sits at the pottery wheel in her home studio, her view from the large windows overlooks a wooded cliff, where trees and shrubs spill downhill and birds flit from birdhouses to branches. The sounds and sights of nature, from which the Hawleyville artist has always drawn inspiration, surround her. On the wall above the wheel, whether the wheel is spinning or Ms Taylor is seated at her worktable hand crafting and sculpting detail work for her pottery, hangs a sign that reads “Play Dirty.”

John O’Sullivan opened Art & Frame of Danbury two years ago, after having worked as a framer since he was 15 years old, at various locations. His love of woodworking was learned from his father, he said, growing up in Bethel, and he attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City.
“It’s the perfect mix of building stuff and art, for me,” Mr O’Sullivan said of his business. “I love building things, and we get to see art from all over the world.”
