In 2021 Grace Tessein was the Salad Days Artist in Residence at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, ME. She made 400+ individually shaped and decorated terra cotta plates which will be sold for Watershed's annual Salad Days event on July 9, 2022. The plates feature flora and fauna found in Maine. Some of the materials for this undertaking were generously donated by Speedball underglaze and Standard clay.
