Sally Wasowski Biography 1946 - 2020

Sally Wasowski's Bio: For twenty-five years Sally designed native landscapes and co-authored ten books on how to use native plants and natural habitats in a garden setting, including Native Texas Plants, Native Texas Gardens, Gardening with Native Plants of the South, Native Landscaping from El Paso to L.A., Gardening with Prairie Plants, and Requiem for a Lawnmower.

In 2003 Sally formed a collaboration with Page Patterson, founder of Taos Clay Studio and Gallery, to create a line of majolica. Majolica is an ancient low fire earthernware that is glazed and richly decorated with color. Page designs and creates the pots and Sally paints them with glazes and paints she mixes herself.

Also in 2003, Sally started painting designs to take to the studio as models for decorating the majolica. After many requests for the paintings, Sally had them reproduced as giclees, a technique that captures the freshness and luminosity of the originals.

All of the insects, birds, and mammals depicted have relationships with the plants with which they are shown, so that each painting and piece of majolica portrays a little bit of natural history.

Except, of course, for the fairies and mermaids.
