This weekend is my Open Studio/Holiday Sale… actually fellow Greenfield potter, and friend, Tiffany Hilton and I decided to have our sales the same weekend… We figured why not advertise together, put our mailing lists together for the post card, and call it a tour. So I sent in some information to the local paper and called it, ” A Tour of Two Potters” ( kinda catchy, huh) well the paper obviously liked it, and wrote a nice blurb using that as the title, with a subtitle, ”Two excellent Greenfield potters” - along with a photo of my teapots in process! Oh and speaking of blurbs… the December issue of Ceramics Monthly gave the, “Homegrown for the Table” show at Pinch in Northampton a little write-up, with a photo of my work!
Here is a taste of what you will see at my studio this weekend!

What a great open studio/ holiday sale it was… the best ever! Thank you to all who came. If you missed it, there are more pots left for holiday gift giving. If you see any pots you like from the pics I posted drop me a line, or if your local give a call, and stop by for a visit.

I always find it hard to stop throwing before my Studio Sales. I get this fear that there will not be enough. I said to my apprentice Pam on Thursday, What if someone comes in and buys a stack of Garlic Grating dishes and I run out. Well Thursday night someone did just that… a customer came to the studio and bought ten “Garlic Grates” (my name for them), I didn’t run out , but it just instilled more fear of not having enough. It’s always nice to sell a bunch of stuff, but needless to say, today I was back in the studio throwing more, and feeling like I should be back in tomorrow for more.
It’s now one in the morning and I’m waiting for a kiln to finish. (did I tell you I just love my new L&L kiln) It’s just non stop for the few weeks before the sale! Here are some olive dishes and butter keepers waiting for the bisque firing.
BTW the Open Studio is December 4,5,6 .
For all you potters out there in blog land… With the economy doing so poorly, I know I’m wondering how we are all doing. Here in western Massachusetts. (the land of many potters) many of us keep in touch on our sales and shows. I would like to know on the larger level how we are all fairing this season in this economy.
I had a great sale this weekend. Less customers, yet those who came, came with the intention to buy. In the western Ma. region there is a real focus on buying local, be it farm products, main street businesses or handmade art and crafts. The people who came are real devoted to this concept… I’m happy to live here!
For the life of me I can never remember to take photos while there are people at my open studio. I can also never remember to do a count of people!
