Parlor Shop Artist Profile: Lynn Hoffman

Philadelphia Art Alliance - Lynn HoffmanThese earthy, floral inspired works of pottery are created by local PA ceramicist Lynn Hoffman. Hoffman studied Illustration and Ceramics at the University of the Arts, and has both made and taught pottery for over 20 years.

Philadelphia Art Alliance - Lynn HoffmanThe wonderful pieces she has on display and for sale here at the Parlor Shop are glazed terracotta and stoneware. They are handmade from slabs which are rolled, formed, and then glazed in stages to allow the original colors of the clay to show through.

The Parlor Shop is open regularly Thursdays through Sundays, 12-5pm. The Parlor Shop is run by volunteers, and profits from sales go back to local artists and craftspeople, with a portion going to the Philadelphia Art Alliance’s fundraising efforts.
