Maggie Bandstra is an artist who works in a variety of media. Creating functional pieces of out of clay and abstract paintings, allow her work to stay fresh. Her clay pieces are inspired by the Arts and Crafts period.  Using the curde seca technique of applying black wax and matt glazed she applies nature inspired images to many of her pieces of pottery. Bandstra’s paintings are also inspired by nature and landscape. They are abstractions where color and texture relationships are explored. Maggie Bandstra currently lives and works Grand Haven Mi.
