Buy special pottery at Silver Bee Boutique in Friendswood and donate through the purchase to Special Olympics.
Two Guys and a Wheel Pottery will be on sale through the end of February at the Silver Bee Boutique at Captain’s Corner Shopping Center.
The two guys are artists Daniel Presley and Julian Lanier. Both have studied pottery for three years with instructor/potter Dennis Lavalley at Alvin Community College.
Both young potters have special needs. The two wanted the profits from the sale of their pottery to go to Special Olympics.
Presley survived heart surgery as a baby. He was diagnosed with (ALL) Leukemia at age 7. He became a cancer survivor at age 10 after three years of chemotherapy.
His art has earned three state blue ribbons in the PTA Art Reflections contest.
His work has been displayed at the Texas Education Association Building in Austin.
He currently enjoys making platters and favors high fire glazes.
Lanier is an artist with autism and a seizure disorder. He finds pottery relaxing and a great creative outlet. He prefers making bowls with single bright colors.
Their creative pieces of art are on sale now through Feb. 28 at Silver Bee Boutique at the corner of FM 518 and FM 2351.
