A New Home

by Brooke Pickering of Bancroft Studios

Recently my business, Bancroft Studios, hit some rough water. To make a long story short, I have been forced to leave my studio space (where I was also renting kilm space and purchasing green ware) and go it alone. There have been many hurdles to overcome and in the last fice weeks I have been frantically trying to get all the pieces in place so I can start up production and eeek out whatever holiday business I can find.

With a new clay supplier, a kiln on order and a promise to all my vendors that the "new" tableware will be as close as possible to the lines that they have been carrying for 2 years, the last obstacle was to find a new place to call home.

Well here it is – my little corner of a shared artist space in the Lydia Pinkham building in Lynn. I’m not all moved in yet but am getting there and the best part is that I am just downstairs from fellow BHer and ceramic artist/expert Kirsten Bassion! I can’t wait for my kiln to arrive and get the party started!


  1. Brooke, Best of luck to you in your new space. You deserve great things!!!

  2. OMG - Change is hard but I know it will bring good things. Will I still see you Dec 6 in Scituate? We're supposed to be next to each other :) Hoping so...
