I met Mikey McGhee about a year ago. I was throwing on my potter’s wheel in my workspace at C2C Gallery. She stopped in to have a look with her husband. Mikey asked if I was taking on new artists, which I wasn’t at the time. They left. Her husband would stop in periodically to chat seeing how we were doing as a business. Then, one day, I took the time to look at Mikey’s work and read about her. What impressed me was her desire to create a form that should be impossible to make in clay.
Her tenacity is another thing. She continued to ask if she could show her work at C2C. I finally paid attention. Mikey’s teapots are amazing. She has worked hard to exhibit them all over the country. They were on exhibit in New York City recently. I feel fortunate to be able to show them to our West Michigan market.
