In September 1999, a Falmouth couple who had been among several bidders for the piece Mathilda incised and called "Four Seasons" since its appearance three years earlier in Cape Cod Life magazine came to Chilmark Pottery and purchased the vase for $1200. They are displaying it in an art deco room in their custom-built home. For photos of Mathilda at her art use this link to Mathilda's art from childhood to college. From that page, click on "Ceramics" to see "Four Seasons" as photographed in Cape Cod Life.

Dan, Ruth and Mathilda Tanner

We're the Tanner family. I'm in hi-tech. Ruth administers an office for the US Army Soldier Systems Center. Our daughter Mathilda (my late mother's namesake) is a multi award-winning multimedia artist. After working as Artist In Residence for six summers at Chilmark Pottery on Martha's Vineyard, she worked and studied in NY City in the summers of 2000 and 2001, before returning to UMass/Amherst to complete her senior year. She graduated cum laude in May 2002. She completed the difficult and competitive two years of training and teaching obligation of the NY City Teaching Fellowship, earning her master's degree in May 2006. She now teaches at Harry S Truman High Shool in the Bronx and lives in Brooklyn NY.

Our pets are a miniature schnauzer "Ranger" and a cockatiel, "Lem". We like to kayak and visit nature's beauty spots. We enjoy birdwatching and snorkeling. My hobby is entertaining with my harmonica playing, sing-alongs, humor, stories and Ranger's tricks. Ruth loves gardening and has many needlework hobbies, with quilting her current passion.

Please use the navigation console at the top of the page to get around to see what we do or to learn more about my cousin Harry Connick Jr. Click on our photo if you'd like to send us E-mail. at the bottom of our page is "Links to Love" to many other interesting sites: Kenn Kweder (folksinger & old friend), Yong Chen (outstanding illustrator & watercolorist and another dear friend) and those of some other of our interesting relations. Nested within "Links to Love" is "More Links to Love", with jumps to homepages of many other admired artists and friends and interesting historic and scenic places near our home.

Love, Peace and Happiness,

Dan, Ruth & Mathilda Tanner
