Jeanmarie O’Clair

After teaching for many years in New York, Jeanmarie O’Clair settled on the shores of Cape Cod and is an active member of the HyArts Cultural District Campus. She is also a member of Cape Cod Potters, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod and the Mid-Cape Cultural Council. Her work has been exhibited in several Cape Cod galleries and featured in juried and invitational shows.

Jeanmarie’s stoneware pottery is inspired by the ocean, beaches and large gardens that surround her Hyannis studio where she creates functional and whimsical pieces, specializing in sgraffito and tiles. All her sgraffito work is carved freehand so each piece has its own personality. To see more examples of her work visit

Hyannis is the hub of tourism from around the world. Many people come for the beaches, or to stroll the shops on Main Street, dine on local cuisine or walk the Kennedy legend trail, but many also come to visit local artists who work in the HyArts Cultural District.
