About Lauryn Axelrod
I am a ceramic artist, specializing in woodfired ceramics, and my studio/gallery is on the property. I am also a photographer, theatre artist, and writer. I am originally from Texas, have traveled extensively around the world, and have lived in Vermont for more than 20 years. I love the rural lifestyle, and the farm allows me open space, peace and quiet, and easy access to mountains, rivers, lakes and forests - the source of my inspiration. I love to meet new people and share the beauty of this area with others.
Lauryn Axelrod purchased this House in 2014
Why Lauryn Axelrod chose West Pawlet
Though I had lived elsewhere in Pawlet, I fell in love with this property because of it's expansiveness, forest and fields, perfect southern exposure, spectacular nightly sunsets, and easy access to rivers, lakes, hiking and biking. The barn, which houses my studio, gallery and workshop space, is 200 years old, and provided a perfect place for my work. It had previously been owned by a glass blower (and before that, it was a commune!), so the studio was all set for ceramics. I love walking the property, finding unique places in the forest, or sitting at sunset to enjoy a glass of wine and the multi-colored sky. The farmhouse and barn have both received extensive renovations, and are extremely comfortable, up-to-date, funky and functional. Pawlet is a great little town, filled with farmers and artists, but off the tourist track. It's one of the few places in Vermont that still retains it's authentic character. Though it's close to Dorset, Manchester, Rutland and New York, it feels like it's decades away. I love the close-knit, accepting community, the wide starry skies, and the "away from it all" feel.

We were met immediately. The home was immaculate and decorated with an artist's touch. The homemade cookies were delicious and a very nice touch. This was a great stay for our adult family.
