Using only a razor blade and a tiny sponge, a single one of her pieces can take up to a month to complete.  Isabelle is self-taught and began experimenting with porcelain at a local pottery co-op while working as a school nurse in Boston in her early 20s. Isabelle is the newest member of The Greenbrier Art Colony.
