Angels are back at Butterfield


Potter Michael Higbe’s 2024 angel series are being featured in the Butterfield Garage Art Gallery in St. Augustine during November and December. Each year, Higbe creates a new twist for his ongoing angel series.

All of his pottery is useful, collectible and gift-worthy.

Higbe was born and raised in the North Florida area where he studied ceramics at Florida State College at Jacksonville. He has a love for functional pottery that brings beauty to the everyday. He does both slab work and throws on the wheel; recently he produced 40 ornamental clay boxes that were used as awards for a national contest for Winter Guard International held in Ohio this spring.

Higbe has won awards in Northeast Florida and has shown his work at CoRK, Great Hang Ups gallery in Fleming Island and is currently showing at Butterfield Garage Art Gallery.

Higbe and his wife, Julia, live in Clay County.
