Gentry’s most recent line of work—her Bee to Sea collection—combines beautiful bright blues and dusky golds with imprinted honeycomb textures. The lovely and whimsical result is a unique array of functional ceramic pottery that highlights the artist’s love for the beauty of nature and the places she’s called home.
“The Bee to Sea collection was born out of the collision of two places I’ve lived and operated my studio,” Gentry tells My Modern Met. “While I currently reside in the countryside of Charlottesville, Virginia, I called the Outer Banks in North Carolina my home for many years. My love for the textures and colors of both places created the idea to combine the boundless blues of the ocean with the warm hues of the countryside as a way to invite others into the two places I love through my work.”
