Mary Pierce LaFleur
Mary Pierce LaFleur began making pottery 30 years ago at the Boston Center for Adult Education. She studied there for three years with Dorothy Mayzel. In 1975, she moved back to Troy, New York when she married her husband, Bob. One of our first purchases was a potter's wheel, followed the next year by an electric kiln, and she was in business. Pinewoods Potters was established in 1977 on Pinewoods Avenue in Troy.
