Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to present Gifts from Friends, a sale from the collections of Takako (Toni) Saito and Michael Boyer to support the Pottery’s capital campaign. The Pottery’s Shape the Future campaign is fundraising for critical updates and enhancements to GHP’s historic Jones Street building to preserve it for future generations.

Saito and Boyer met at Greenwich House Pottery in 1971 and became fast friends when a year later—by chance—Boyer rented the apartment next door to Saito’s on Cornelia Street. Saito’s legacy lives on today in our studios in the form of our beloved T1-Sculpture Clay, which she developed. Boyer was a faculty member at GHP for over 30 years. The two remained dear friends, and Saito left her collection to Boyer upon her passing. In recognition of the important place GHP has held in both of their hearts, Boyer has donated a selection of works from their collections to support GHP’s Shape the Future campaign. Many of the available works were collected from renowned artists during their exhibitions or workshops at Greenwich House Pottery over the years, and include work by Posey Bacopoulos, Paulus Berensohn, Fong Chow, Karen Karnes, Warren Mackenzie, and Byron Temple.
