For over 30 years Allen and Pat Littlefield have been engaged in a joint endeavor of creating their artwork and living space. They built their house and studio by themselves (with a little help from their friends) and are still constantly involved in improving and expanding both in the same way they have their ceramic sculpture and paper constructions. In their “spare time” they have landscaped their property, built stone walls, paths in the woods and occasional gardens.
Each piece of artwork is individually created and no two pieces are identical even if they are part of a series. “Sometimes when we start to make a piece we realize we have forgotten how we used to do it and start over again with fresh ideas.” The results are always intriguing, but never expect to get an exact copy of what you see—including what you see on this website.
For the Littlefields, their art and lives are intertwined and are constantly influencing each other from the designs they see in nature to the trips they take to building materials and technological items.
