Strawberry Season and Lucia Pottery

It doesn’t get any more local than this… strawberries from Nourse Farm in Whately, Bread from El Jardin Bakery in Deerfield, syrup from Sunrise farm in Colrain, honey in my tea from Warm Colors Apiary in Deerfield, eggs from my chickens, and pottery made by me. A good way to start my work week.

Looking forward to picking many pounds of strawberries this week at Nourse Farms. We will be making lots of jam, and freezing bunches for shakes and strawberry sauce all year long!

Berry Baskets and Berry Bowls

The Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail is two weeks away!  One of the items (a customer favorite) that I have been making are berry bowls and baskets.  Here are some drying on my work table, and a couple of finished ones. 

Berry Season is almost upon us!

Berry Baskets

I took some photos today of my newer berry bowls.  I was getting bored with the bowl part of it… needed to have a little more fun, so now they are berry baskets.

Here are some variations of photos from natural light with props to a grey/black background.  My new props are old finds from our barn.  Kinda going with the industrial/antique look, or cottage/chic… or as I like to call it, (when my feminine pots are juxtaposed with the old finds), industrial/fem.

This photo below is so different from the natural light and props… still nice, not as warm… but feels quiet and calming to me.
